WELCOME TO THE 7TH ANNUAL SF URBAN FILM FEST!

Thanks for joining our first-ever virtual festival.

Our programs are intentionally curated to produce community-generated solutions –the discussion is as important as the films. We invite you to  get the full experience by carving out time and space for both. Specific information on how to participate in each discussion is available on individual program pages.

Check out all of this year’s programs now!

RENTAL PASSES

You will need a Rental Pass to watch rented films during the week of the festival. These passes give you access to all of the films in our Rental Programs and are pay-what-you-can. Thank you for taking what you need and giving what you can. By doing so, you are helping us spread our programming to as wide an audience as possible.

A $100 PASS gives you admission to the whole festival, and covers the cost for one community member who does not have the resources to pay.

A $50 PASS gives you admission to the whole festival.

$20 PASS and NO-COST PASSES are available for community members who do not have the resources to pay full price.

RENTALS HOW-TO

When you’re ready to watch, run our quick test to make sure your browser is compatible.

Once you click “Play,” you will have 24 hours to finish watching all the films in that particular program. Complete the test BEFORE you click play so you don’t start your 24 hrs watching period.

ACCESSIBILITY

Live captioning is available by request. Please email us with the name of the program you would like to attend. Although we cannot promise due to limited budgets, we will try to accommodate all requests.

Whenever available, films have the option for closed captioning.  Please email us for a full list of films. 

All live panel discussions held on YouTube Live have auto-captioning available. All panel discussions not held on YouTube Live will be posted to our YouTube channel, where auto-captioning is also available. Recognizing the shortfalls of YouTube auto-captioning, here is an alternative auto-captioning service to try.

Although we make progress on our accessibility standards every year, we aren’t yet where we’d like to be and we thank you for your patience. Please check out our friends at Superfest, who are leaders in film festival accessibility. 

If you have any questions, email us.
