SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The “GI Film Festival” opens today at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park.

Tuesday, May 17, 2022 is the opening night of the GI Film Festival San Diego at MOPA.

Opening night tickets are $25 for general admission and $20 for military, veteran, or KPBS members. All tickets can be purchased online at GIFilmFestivalSD.org.

On Good Morning San Diego, KUSI’s Jenny Milkowski was talking to some of the filmmakers showcasing their work this week.

She spoke with Mark Pedri, director, and Carrie McCarthy, producer, of “Dear Sirs”. “Dear Sirs” is a 92-minute feature-length documentary that details the horrific experiences of prisoners of war during World War II and shines a light on the stigma surrounding post-traumatic stress (PTS) and military mental health.

She was also able to chat with Jodi Cilley, founder and president of the San Diego Film Consortium, and Benito Bautista, producer of “A Long March”.

Finally, Jenny spoke with filmmakers Scott Campbell, director, and Aaron Neely, subject of the film, about “Down on the Ranch.”
