Warmest greetings to all in Cinematheque’s world-wide community of artists, curators and film lovers. We wish you all the best in these days of social distancing and COVID-19. In these troubled times, the staff and Board of Cinematheque remain as committed as ever to our work and Mission and are working to keep up with ongoing issues affecting our work and community. Be strong, be safe and wash your hands.


Screenings: At the moment, Cinematheque’s scheduled screenings have been either cancelled or postponed to future dates (to be determined). We are committed to resuming public screenings at our regular schedule as soon as it is safe to do so. Please note that our ongoing screening certainty is becoming our nemesis, screening through May 2 at the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts is now available to view online!

CROSSROADS: Cinematheque’s CROSSROADS festival, originally scheduled for June 7–10, will also be rescheduled for a future date. We are in regular communication with SFMOMA, our festival home, concerning this and will keep our public up to date via our email newsletter and social media communications. If you submitted work for consideration to CROSSROADS, please understand that our notification dates (acceptances and declined entries) are also delayed.

Cinematheque Online! In brighter news, Cinematheque is thrilled to announce the debut of its new online video channel! As an expansion of our curatorial work onto the world wide web, this channel will feature original programming and re-presentations of past programs. We’re thrilled to open the series with certainty is becoming our nemesis, a program presented in collaboration with the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts around their Orlando exhibition.
