Ticket Information

A film festival opening in San Diego this week reveals the struggles and triumphs of the military experience.

The GI Film Group, which hosts the GI Film Festival in Washington D.C., is bringing the festival to San Diego as part of a unique collaboration with the San Diego Film Consortium and KPBS.

"San Diego is by far the largest community of both active and retired (service members)," Bob Lawrence, member of the GIFF Advisory Committee San Diego, told KPBS Midday Edition on Monday. "This is a natural place for the film festival to come to."

Lawrence, a San Diego military reporter, said the festival is for veterans, by veterans.

It features dramas, documentaries and short films from Tuesday through Sunday at several locations around San Diego.

GI Film Festival San Diego opens Tuesday with the screening of the British film "Kilo Two Bravo" by director Paul Katis.
