The mission of the San Francisco Film Society is to foster an appreciation for film, video and other moving-image media, and to preserve and disseminate knowledge about them as powerful means both of aesthetic expression and of cultural understanding. We serve and seek to expand a multinational and multicultural community of artists and audiences through year-round exhibition, education, annotation, advocacy, encouragement of artists and celebration.
The San Francisco Film Society is a small, non-profit arts organization that has presented the San Francisco International Film Festival for over 50 years, making it the oldest film festival in the Americas. In addition, the SFFS educates, entertains and enriches a wide and diverse range of audiences with programs and events in four core areas: Internationalism, Education, Citywide Outreach and Exploring New Media.
