The San Diego premiere of a new full-length film by award-winning San Diego State University alumnus Destin Daniel Cretton is scheduled for May 11 at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park.

“I AM NOT A HIPSTER,”
an official selection of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, features performances from San Diego indie artists and musicians.

Sundance prize-winner

Cretton won fame in 2009, when he took the Jury Prize for a short film at Sundance. The next year he won a Nicholl Fellowship—a $30,000 prize given to no more than five of 5,000 novice screenwriters by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

About Cretton

A graduate of SDSU’s Department of Theatre, Television and Film, Cretton has directed or co-directed five short films. “I AM NOT A HIPSTER” is his first full-length film.
