Festival program announcement: April 2017


Founded by filmmaker Bruce Baillie in 1961, San Francisco Cinematheque is the Bay Area’s premier venue for avant-garde/experimental, underground and personally expressive film and video work. In our steadfast dedication to exhibiting works of aesthetically radical cinema from all historical eras and geo-political locales, San Francisco Cinematheque celebrates the breadth and depth of this vibrant art form in all its myriad expressivities.

CROSSROADS 2017 is the eighth manifestation of our annual film festival to be held May 19–21, 2017 at a new venue to be announced soon in San Francisco. CROSSROADS 2017 will showcase 60–70 new film/video works by emerging and established filmmakers, including performance and works of “live cinema.”
