Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema showcases the works of Bernal Heights residents and other local filmmakers to increase the exposure and recognition of local artists, to heighten appreciation by neighborhood and citywide residents, and to bring the community together for the enjoyment of our parks and neighborhood resources.
Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema has been offering free screenings of local filmmaker films since 2004. The screenings take place in parks and other venues in and around the Bernal Heights neighborhood.
It began in Precita Park with a single screening of short films by people who lived in the neighborhood. Over the years it has grown to an annual festival of short and feature films from all over San Francisco, which is attended by hundreds of viewers throughout the Bay Area.
Our main season takes place on a weekend or two in September and/or October each year.
Following the main weekend is an awards ceremony and screening of the season's favorites.
