The Future of the Castro Theatre

On December 8 there is an important joint meeting of San Francisco’s Historical Preservation Commission and Planning Commission that will take up the issue of the proposed changes to the Castro Theatre’s seating configuration. Make your voice heard and help maintain this jewel in San Francisco’s crown as a multi-use venue that honors filmgoing among its uses.

25 Years!

SFSFF just held its 25th anniversary festival May 5–11. To celebrate we went fishing for compliments and a very interesting group of film lovers took our bait. See what they have to say. Read our Anniversary Tributes and Essays from the 2022 book.

A feast for lovers of classic film and live music that is as elaborate, ambitious, and masterfully mounted as any I've seen.
