Code of Conduct
SFFILM believes in the power of film to expose us to different perspectives and bold visions, to inspire us, to reflect our identities, and to celebrate our lives.
SFFILM is committed to providing our audiences, guests, and partners an experience that is, first and foremost, safe. Although safety can be different for each individual related to personal preferences or expressed identities, we define it to mean hosting spaces and experiences that are free of harassment and discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, class, age, or ability. Harassment, threatening behavior, and violence will absolutely not be tolerated. Not abiding by COVID-19 safety protocols is considered a violation of this Code of Conduct. We reserve the right to revoke, without notice or refund, tickets, passes, credentials, or access to SFFILM Festival events and venues.
You can reach out directly to firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you’ve observed or experienced a violation of these policies, and SFFILM will work to assess the situation and to respond as soon as possible. Please remember that notifying SFFILM does not constitute or replace a notification to local law enforcement. Emails sent to email@example.com will be received by SFFILM’s HR Representative.
Media Code of Conduct
SFFILM welcomes members of the media to cover our events as newsworthy and interesting to a wide array of audiences. Members of media are expected to abide by the SFFILM Code of Conduct when engaging with our staff, guests, filmmakers, partners, or any persons affiliated with an SFFILM event they are covering. Due to the nature of our work together to facilitate both coverage and access, members of the media are expected to adhere to the highest standards of professionalism and ethical behavior common in journalism including accuracy, person to person respect, and clarity in communication.
