11:00 AM San Diego Black Film Festival The San Diego Black Film Festival's mission is to preserve and promote African American & African Diaspora Cinema. Established in 2002 and held each year in late January, the San Diego Black Film Festival has grown to become one of the largest black film festivals in the country.

Our motto is "Spotlight on African American & African Diaspora Cinema." We screen over 100 films each year: Comedy, Drama, Documentaries, Animation, GLBT, Horror, Religious, Foreign/African Diaspora, Shorts, Feature Films and music videos.

As the first and largest black film festival of the year, numerous other film festival reps scout new films from us for their event. Simply put, each year the San Diego Black Film Festival will premiere a large percentage of the independent films that will prove successful throughout the year at other film festivals.

7:00 PM Stage: Aubergine San Diego Repertory Theatre presents "Aubergine," an unforgettable story of love, family and the healing power of food.​

Ray believes in the power of food. As a gourmet chef, he's seen a bowl of berries help a woman to fall in love. He's heard stories of a meal prepared by a mother to keep a son from leaving home and moving to the other side of the world. Now with the help of his uncle, who arrives unexpectedly from Korea, Ray is tasked with preparing a family soup recipe to keep his father alive.

When words fail, a home-cooked meal transcends differences in this touching story of intergenerational connectedness, forgiveness and the sweetest spice of life: love. As a Korean family struggles to relate across emotional and cultural divides, it's the ingredients they share in common that lead to understanding. "Aubergine" is a mouthwatering meditation on the beauty of life where hope is no mere ingredient—it's the main course.

The show runs Jan. 24 through Feb. 17, 2019, in the Lyceum Space Theatre in Horton Plaza. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the San Diego REP Box Office, by calling the box office at (61) 544-1000, or online at sdrep.org

Admission/Cost: $25 - $69

Location:
