Wave Icon

San Diego is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the country, mainly due to its lively atmosphere, abundance of family entertainment, amazing beaches, and varied cultural events. No matter your age or entertainment preference, there is always something happening in San Diego to keep you busy and intrigued. This year, one of the premier events to attend is the Latino Film Festival.

The Latino Film Festival is celebrating its 19th year. This year’s festival takes place March 8th – 18th and gives visitors the opportunity to view Latino films, art, and music through the many exhibitions and concerts celebrating rich Latino history. Even better? There are several levels of festival passes to suit any budget! For instance, the premier pass offers entry to all of the programs with no waiting, a free one-year pass to the Media Arts Center in San Diego, entry into all of the festival galas, and other perks. The next pass down would include entrance to eleven of the programs. You can also choose the family pass, which includes tickets for two adults and two children to four film screenings. And if you want to casually check out the event for the first time with a handful of films, the Documania pass is for you. Group packages are available if you would like to go with a group of friends.

The festival is located at the Ultrastar Mission Valley Cinemas Hazard Center, right in the middle of all of San Diego’s happening spots. There are several restaurants and shops within walking distance of the festivities. After a great day rich with art, film, and culture, rest your head at premier beachfront accommodations at the Ocean Park Inn. Just a short drive from the festival, the OPI offers wonderful group packages and rates, as well as an easy booking process for easy and affordable stays for everyone. The hotel offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, spacious rooms, affordable prices and packages, and several in-room amenities that cannot be beat.
