True art transcends time.

SFSFF Online

In the absence of live events SFSFF has moved online to continue to bring our audience engaging content. Masterclasses with amazing musicians, an online version of our beloved Amazing Tales from the Archives program, member screenings and more. Check out past offerings in our screening room and look for upcoming presentations in our EVENTS menu.

25th Anniversary Festival

Mark your calendars for May 5–11, 2022 when SFSFF plans to celebrate our 25th anniversary (and the end of the pandemic) in style! We look forward to getting together with our friends from the Bay Area and around the world to revel in beautiful images on screen combined with superb musical accompaniment. We have big plans!

Music at SFSFF

Music is an essential element of every SFSFF presentation. We have featured hundreds of musicians from all around the world at our live cinema events.

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