65th SFFILM Festival
April 21 - May 1
The 65th SFFILM Festival includes 130 films from over 56 countries which can make it hard to decide what to see!
The SFFILM Programming Team curates the films into Spotlights which highlight films from a region of the world, programs that are in competition, and some even by length. Use our Spotlights to help you get tickets to the films that spark your curiosity!
Founded in 1957, the San Francisco International Film Festival (SFFILM Festival) is the longest-running film festival in the Americas. The annual event features a range of marquee premieres, international competitions, compelling documentaries, short and mid-length films, live music performances, and dazzling red carpet events. The SFFILM Festival is deeply rooted in the culture and process of film appreciation—film as an art form and as a meaningful agent for social change—and is an important showcase for the most searching and innovative films from around the globe.
