Event Details

The 25th SF IndieFest will be presented at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco from February 2 to February 9, and online through virtual cinema from February 2 to February 12.

“While the city might have changed over the last 25 years, SF IndieFest’s mission and curation hasn’t,” says Festival Director Jeff Ross. “We still seek the new and unusual to present to San Francisco film fans.”

For 25 years, the mission of the San Francisco Independent Film Festival has been to seek out new film discoveries for Bay Area film fans to enjoy. Now, with the age of computerized algorithms, a human touch is needed more than ever to curate a unique cinematic experience. SF IndieFest continues to provide new and unusual alternatives to the Hollywood Industrial Complex. These are films you won’t find at the multiplex or popular streaming services.
