The SFFILM Makers team hosts dozens of events throughout the year designed specifically for the Bay Area’s independent filmmaking community. These include filmmaker panels, work-in-progress screenings, live script readings, pitch workshops, networking mixers, and more. Guest speakers from across the country are frequently invited to share their expertise—recent events have covered topics such as fundraising, navigating the distribution landscape, making the switch from documentaries to fiction films, engaging film journalists, and the pros and cons of crowdsourcing, among many others. Filmmaker programming takes place at FilmHouse, SFFILM’s vibrant creative hub and residency space for local filmmakers.
