To view the films, just go the the SDUFEX website from 02 October and watch at your leisure until 10 October.
SDUFEX goes Virtual
When it became evident that COVID19 would prevent our traditional festival from being held at Qualcomm Hall in San Diego, we had two choices: Punt it to 2021, or present it online. The decision was obvious. The call for entries went out on FilmFreeway, and over 150 films were entered. Our panel of independent judges scored each on a ten point scale. The top fifteen were selected for our virtual festival.
The good news is that it’s accessible online throughout the world. From October 2nd through October 10th, you’ll be able to watch all the selected films at your convenience, in your home, on the SDUFEX website. And it’s all free of charge. There will be no commercials, no strings attached. You could binge watch all fifteen at once, or spread them out over the ten days, and even re-watch the ones you like best.
Here’s how to watch the festival. Go to our website. Starting October 2, there will be a link to the films. It will be live through October 10. You can watch it on your phone, tablet, or computer. We recommend streaming it to your home TV via Bluetooth or mirroring. It’s our attempt to give back to the people who have supported SDUFEX over the past 20 years.
