Let’s get together

The GI Film Festival San Diego is excited to return this event as an in-person, shared experience.  We are paying close attention to local and state public health orders and CDC recommendations.  We recognize that these recommendations change from time to time, based on local case positivity rates, hospitalization rates, and other factors.  In order to ensure the experience is safe for all, we are asking all filmmakers, attendees, volunteers, and staff to observe our COVID-19 protocols.

COVID-19 Protocols
  • Assess your health before you leave. If you observe any runny nose, cough, tickle/sore throat, fever, body aches or any other unusual symptoms, please stay home.
  • You always have the option to wear the facial covering while indoors — regardless of vaccine status.
  • Festival staff will routinely clean common areas throughout the festival run. Hand sanitizer will be available for all to use at the check-in table. Public restrooms, managed by the City of San Diego, are located outside and adjacent to the museum.
  • If you test COVID positive up to 5 days following the festival, please notify our team as soon as possible.

These protocols are in compliance with San Diego County public health guidance and in collaboration with the festival’s venue. They are not negotiable. Please do not harass our volunteers, staff, and partners regarding these policies.

Thank you,
GI Film Festival San Diego
