With more than 160 films in this year's diverse lineup, the 24th Annual San Diego Latino Film Festival sets out to entertain, inspire, agitate and transcend borders by fusing the voices of Latino filmmakers from San Diego, Baja California and around the world. All films will be subtitled, ensuring that both English and Spanish speakers alike can be wrapped up in the transportative experience of going to the movies. The 11-day event, produced by San Diego's Non-Profit Media Arts Center, will be held on five screens at the AMC 18 Fashion Valley Theater as well as select screenings at the Media Arts Center's Digital Gym Cinema in North Park.

Today San Diego's Little Italy is a bustling commercial, dining and entertainment district. But more than a half century ago, it was a largely residential area populated by Italian families, most of which were involved in San Diego's thriving tuna industry. Over the next few decades, Little Italy became a self-contained neighborhood with its own grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, a Catholic church, an elementary school, a drugstore, and a fire department. Then a half century ago the community was cut in half by the expansion of San Diego's freeway system, devastating a once thriving community. Read about Little Italy's rich past and about local efforts to preserve the neighborhood's unique ethnic character and identity.
