We have always given a special spotlight to films that have come from our own community here. Since we started in San Diego, and have moved to Orange County, we now consider both locations for this showcase. It is odd thinking of that now that we are virtual for 2020, but it is also pretty darn cool that we get to showcase our people to an audience outside of our exact region!

"Wow! Something so real and so frightening. From the way it is captured through the lens to the intimacy of the blocking to the honesty of the characters to the real fear that this story strikes in me." -Programmer Jay Kay
