Founded in 1998 to illuminate the range, depth and diversity of the
African-American experience, the San Francisco Black Film Festival has been
a driving force integrating the work of independent Black filmmakers into
the mainstream. The festival's mission is to celebrate African American
cinema and the African cultural diaspora and to showcase a diverse
collection of films -- from emerging and established filmmakers that
highlight the beauty and complexity of the African and African American
experience. Our film selections highlight the richness of Black culture
while recognizing universal themes and the similarities that exist among all
Presenting an array of work from South Africa, Brazil, Canada, Italy,
France, the United Kingdom and the United States, the festival presents a
broad spectrum of subjects from socio-economics to streetwise urban culture.
The SFBFF has evolved into an established forum for the cinematic community
and draws a vibrant mix of established filmmakers, emerging artists,
celebrities, critics and film fans from around the world.
