Help Today by Donating to our Non Profit

Dear Supporter:
The Media Arts Center San Diego (MACSD), a 501 c(3) non-profit organization, is in need of your financial support at this time of the on-going COVID-19 crisis. Please donate today at: or donate via PayPal, by donating to:


Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19), we have had to either postpone or seriously limit all of our IN-PERSON film exhibition screenings, youth education programs, and even community video production work.


Until further notice, the 27th San Diego Latino Film Festival has been postponed until early Fall 2020. Most likely SDLFF 2020 will be a “virtual” event pending further development by health officials. We are excited to announce that we’re now offering all of our Digital Gym CINEMA movies on line via a new “DGC @ Home” virtual movie intiative. Visit here for on line movie screening info:  Also, our Summer Teen Producers Project, Youth Media Tech Camps, and Teen Filmmakers Camps will be held virtually. Visit this link for registration information and new details:


Due to all of these shutdowns and postponements, our non profit is in need of your support now more than ever.
So we are asking you to please consider donating to us today! If you have ever enjoyed our cinema, educational programs; &/or the San Diego Latino Film Festival over the past 27 years, please donate TODAY! Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated in this difficult time.  Donate here – or donate via PayPal, by donating to:


Your donation is tax deductible. For your records, MACSD’s Federal Tax Id # is: 33-0871577
Also if you have already bought tickets to the 2020 San Diego Latino Film Festival, purchased a camp registration; and/or Digital Gym CINEMA movie ticket, we kindly ask that you do not ask for a refund at this time. This will help greatly with our cash flow situation; since we’ve incurred many expenses.
What we can offer is a CREDIT to be used for any of our programs once this crisis has subsided (i.e. Youth Media Tech Camps, San Diego Latino Film Festival; and/or Digital Gym CINEMA).


Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. My contact info: 619.230.1938 x 101, Email:


Thank you in advance for your consideration and support during this trying time,
