SFFILM at Home
Amid these unprecedented circumstances, SFFILM is making sure that “social distancing” doesn’t keep us from connecting with the community and stories we love. Despite physical separation, we want to gather with you virtually to celebrate great films and filmmakers together. It is in that spirit that we invite you to SFFILM at Home — here are a few things we’re working on to help you stay engaged with film culture during these challenging times.
SFFILM needs your help to continue doing this work — please consider supporting us.
SFFILM members get priority access to a series of live-streamed conversations with filmmakers from the 2020 Festival program and beyond, moderated by our intrepid programming team. As films become available to watch at home, we’ll provide the place to gather online to discuss them. Watch your inbox for updates!
From the Archives
Relive some of the best onstage conversations hosted by SFFILM in recent years, featuring world-class filmmakers and actors. Every day of our original 2020 Festival dates (April 8–21), we’ll be sharing videos of full onstage presentations, along with links to watch the films being discussed, when possible.
Meet the Filmmakers
We may not have the Festival to introduce you to this year’s filmmakers, but we still want you to hear what they have to say. Check out these short videos sent in from the class of 2020, so you can hear more about their films, how they are staying connected to their creative process during this strange time, and more.
As schools remain closed and parents continue to also serve as teachers, we recognize the challenge to come up with fun learning activities for kids, and we are here to help! The SFFILM Education team specializes in creating tools to connect films to effective and engaging learning activities, with helpful viewing guides that provide discussion topics and content-related exercises.
