Support Us

SFFILM is a nonprofit organization with a mission to champion the world's finest films and filmmakers through programs anchored in and inspired by the spirit and values of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Presenter of the San Francisco International Film Festival, SFFILM also produces screenings and events throughout the year for nearly 100,000 film lovers and hosts media education programs for more than 10,000 students and teachers annually. In addition to these public programs, SFFILM supports the careers of hundreds of independent filmmakers from the Bay Area and beyond with grants, residencies, and other creative development services.

We couldn't do this work without a dedicated community of supporters, sponsors, and foundation partners.
