2018 SF Urban Film Festival: Screenings & Seminars | SF

The SF Urban Film Fest (SFUFF) is a unique film festival that focuses on cities and civic engagement inspired by great storytelling. The festival believes compelling stories can help shape urbanist ideas, practice, and project implementation.

SFUFF is organized by urban planners and screens films in tandem with panels and workshops.

2018 SF Urban Film Fest (SFUFF)
November 11-18, 2018
All Over San Francisco
Cost: Some events are free, but an RSVP is required for each.

The “City That Holds Us” theme inspires the 5th annual week-long SF Urban Film Fest, November 11-18, 2018.

The city holds us because its inhabitants contribute to its well being as much as the city takes care of us. It holds us by providing outlets for artistic expression, a stage for organizing political movements, places to build community through team sports, and inspiration for stories of human resilience.

Join in shifting the paradigm to nurture the city and everyone at SFUFF 2018 where film screenings and panel discussion events will be featured such as “Public Space for Protest” at the Roxie Theater and “Art as Political Currency” at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Murals are a powerful form of art that expose us to beauty while oftentimes critiquing political and social conditions. The act of painting murals often brings people together through a sense of affinity and shared purpose, while at the same time offering challenges to regimes of power, expressing dissent, of simply revealing alternate points of view.  

This program is collection of shorts focusing on visual and graphic art in the public realm as a way of expressing and cultivating social capital; and will explore how mural artists around the world are engaged in a practice that provokes and unites.

Join in to watch the films along with a lively discussion.
