If your New Year’s resolution was to add more culture to your life, a cool new indie film program has just come to town, thanks to the Museum of Photographic Arts. They have teamed up with the Sundance Institute to spread cultural variety and engagement across San Diego and Tijuana. The Film Forward Program brings big-name, hugely-acclaimed independent films to areas that typically do not have access to them. With various community partners hosting the screenings, the events are free and open to the public. Further your experience at each screening, while participating in a workshop-based discussion afterwards.
