Frozen Solid

San Francisco has always been an excellent place to showcase film without the oversaturation of a certain festival circuit farther south. The San Francisco Frozen Film Festival is one of our favorites for its commitment to cultivating and creating opportunities for the city's raw talent — independent filmmakers, youths, filmmakers of conscience. In addition to the festival, the SFFFF Youth Program is dedicated to guiding underserved youth toward careers in film through educational programs and screen time. This year's program includes shorts like Jesse Rosenberg's Life Sentences, a timely doc about families affected by the incarceration of their loved ones, and Mural, which follows artists with developmental disabilities from The Arc San Francisco as they collaborate with civic artists from freespace.io, as well as features like the Zoë Kravitz rom-com Pretend We're Kissing.

The San Francisco Frozen Film Festival opens at 6 p.m. through Saturday, July 18, at the Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St., S.F. $12; frozenfilmfestival.com.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
