Festival History

The San Francisco International Women’s Film Festival (SFIWFF) has a long tradition of providing the community with some of the best films directed and co-directed by women from all over the world. Since 2004, the SFIWFF has presented an elective program of narrative, documentary and international features and short films. SFIWFF film screenings serve as a catalyst for creating and facilitating dialogue through the power of independent filmmaking, and represent a range of perspectives, both locally and globally. SFIWFF is a vital and much-needed community forum that is widely reviewed and attended. The festival celebrates the exceptional contributions of women in the world of cinema, and represents a convergence of excellence in filmmaking from around the globe.
