With genres ranging from action, comedies and romantic comedies to documentaries, animation, Asia-pop and family friendly films, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. The full SDAFF will take place at five venues across San Diego County from November 5 to 14, with the majority of its programming held at UltraStar Cinemas in Hazard Center.
In addition to experiencing unique independent and international films, SDAFF offers audiences the opportunity to get up close and personal with filmmakers, producers, actors and actresses from its films with Q&A panels and photo opportunities.
This year, get your cameras ready for the one and only Dr. Ken Jeong (The Hangover, NBC’s Community), who will be talking about his new sitcom, Dr. Ken, at a panel discussion Saturday, November 7, at UltraStar Cinemas. Getting Intimate with Dr. Ken tickets are available online for $12 or can be purchased at the UltraStar box office at any time.
