DMF Talks, the Del Mar Foundation’s unique version of TED Talks, draws its speakers from the exceptionally deep bench of locally-based creative, intellectual and scientific leaders. Launched in 2012, DMF Talks aims to entertain, inspire, and inform the Del Mar community through a series of free presentations.

DMF Talks on Video

The Del Mar Foundation presents three to five DMF Talks events per year. Through a partnership between the Del Mar Foundation and Del Mar TV, these talks are recorded for the education and enjoyment of the Del Mar Community and beyond. Below you will find videos of some of recent DMF Talks. More are available on the Foundation’s YouTube channel and Del Mar TV’s Vimeo channel.  Due to video production schedules, there may be a delay between a DMF Talk event and the availability of the video. Please enjoy past DMF Talks while you wait for your favorite recent talk!
