The excitement, the flavors, the whirl of sensations of the SDIFF Gala are now a renowned feature of the annual festival.  While everyone who joins in knows they are giving to a great cause, they come because it is also a fabulous party.  Italian bounty, Italian hospitality, and the constant dance of sensations and stories make this party more than a night to remember – it makes this a legend for those who join in.  And joining in means making your San Diego Italian Film Festival able to bring in even more great movies and events you want to see here in San Diego.

The festival has reached out to Italy to bring its best to you.  Every event in the festival leads to the gala where all the elements of Italian joy and celebration find their best expression in your giving and your enjoyment.  For all the fantasies you have of these delights, they find their best expression in this night that feeds senses, soul and mind.

Join us, come to our piazza, celebrate another grand festival.  And help the festival begin its next year with all the encouragement you can give.  Your generosity and your pleasure will each find their reflection in this Italian party.  And after the party, be treated to one of the most delightful movies to come out of Italy.  It is a real treat, a great dessert, and will add just the right fizz to your night.
