    Film Forward heads to San Diego, CA and Tijuana, Mexico for a cross-border program in collaboration with the Museum of Photographic Arts. International filmmakers Srdan Golubovic (Director, Circles) and Hilla Medalia (Director, Dancing In Jaffa) will tour with Film Forward for a program of film screenings, discussions, and workshops in various venues and throughout San Diego and Tijuana. 

    Circles explores the moral dilemmas and story strands that emerge from one fateful moment during the Balkan war. Twenty years later, all of those affected from this moment are forced to confront the past through their own crises. Dancing In Jaffa tells the story of Pierre Dulaine, a renowned ballroom dancer who believes that dance can overcome political and cultural differences for Jewish and Palestinian Israeli children. 

    Other films that will be screening with this program but without filmmaker representatives are: Fruitvale Station, If You Build It, The Rocket, The World Before Her, Twenty Feet From Stardom, Valentine Road

    The Museum of Photographic Arts
    The Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) is an internationally recognized center for visual learning, passionately dedicated to sharing and exploring the universal language of photography.  

    Our mission is to inspire, educate, and engage the broadest possible audience through the presentation, collection, and preservation of photography, film, and video. 

    Venues

    Media Arts Center – Digital Gym
    The Digital Gym is dedicated to engaging neighborhoods in community self-expression via new technologies through a store with digitized products, media experiences and hands-on media programs.

    San Diego Public Library
    The San Diego Public Library is a popular destination that connects this diverse community to free educational and cultural resources that enrich the lives of visitors and residents alike. With 5.6 million visitors, the library exceeds the attendance at San Diego Padres and Chargers home games combined. 

    Point Loma Library
    The new Point Loma/Hervey Branch Library opened Sept. 20, 2003, with a major community celebration. The new, 26,000-square-foot facility is more than five times larger than the old Point Loma library, and it was the first project completed under the City of San Diego's $312.3 million library building program. The two-level building includes a community room for 122 people, kitchen, outdoor patios, comfortable lounge areas, a computer room, and seminar rooms. The children's area, which includes an art area and Story Time Zone, is the largest of any children's library in the City. This state-of-the-art facility holds 80,000 books and other materials. Book stacks were designed in a radiating fashion so that library staff at the central desk has visual control of most of the library. The roof forms simulate waves breaking on a beach. Special attention was given to the creation of natural sunlight filtering through the rotunda's sky dome and the library's windows preventing direct sunlight from deteriorating the books. Up-lighting makes it glow at night, creating a beacon/landmark for the neighborhood that is reminiscent of the region's most notable landmark, the Point Loma Lighthouse. The site also includes a small landscaped area with a grassy area that preserves the existing mature pine trees and creates a meeting and celebratory space for the neighborhood and community.

    SD School of Creative and Performing Arts
    The San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) is a San Diego Unified School District college-preparatory, arts-focused public magnet school for students in grades 6 through 12 who have a strong interest and talent in the arts.

Members participate in weekly Shabbat observance, ongoing educational and social action programs.

We were originally organized in 1968 under the name of Trabajadores de la Raza, San Diego Chapter, to serve Spanish-speaking monolingual clients in the community of San Ysidro. Over the years, our services and target population have expanded to include all of South San Diego’s population. While area demographics virtually ensure that the majority of our clients continue to be Latino, Casa Familiar welcomes clients from all walks of life, regardless of race, ethnic background, national origin, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. Casa Familiar is a widely recognized authority when it comes to understanding the unique challenges faced by border communities. We respond to what is known to be a multidimensional concern with an appropriately holistic approach—We offer over fifty programs spanning the program areas of Human Services, Community Development, Recreation Services, Technology, Arts and Culture, and Education.

    Joan B. Kroc School for Peace and Justice
    The IPJ was founded in 2000 with a generous gift from San Diego philanthropist Joan B. Kroc, who stipulated that the Institute not only "talk about peace, but make peace." Beginning with a Dedicatory Conference in 2001, attended by former Presidents Jimmy Carter of the United States and Oscar Arias Sanchez of Costa Rica, along with many other peacebuilders and representatives from four conflict-affected states, the IPJ has worked to bring together the powerful and the marginalized to build strong peacebuilding coalitions. The school offers a master's program in peace and justice studies and also encompasses the Trans-Border Institute, which was founded in 1994 and focuses on Mexico-U.S. border issues.

Through the production of primarily female playwrights and the special attention given to plays which defy the stereotypes of what women are writing about, MOXIE expands the idea of what is feminine. Our dedication to finding work that is underproduced means we're discovering the classics of the future.

    St. Paul Cathedral Epicopal Church
    St. Paul’s Church became St. Paul's Cathedral in 1985 when the new San Diego diocese with its own bishop was created out of the Diocese of Los Angeles. The diocese encompasses San Diego and Imperial counties, part of Riverside County, and Yuma, Arizona. As San Diego’s cathedral, St. Paul’s is the seat of the diocese’s bishop, the Right Reverend James Mathes. His chair, or cathedra, is placed behind the main Altar, with the diocesan coat of arms displayed on the wall above and behind. The Diocese of San Diego counts fifty-one congregations with more than 23,000 members.

Nine students in 1946 began the dream that today still live more than four thousand students, young people who follow the path of their predecessors in order to succeed in society.
