SF Urban Film Fest 

When: Sun., Nov. 11, 6 p.m. 2018
Join us at the 5th annual SF Urban Film Fest (November 11-18, 2018), a week-long film festival that celebrates cities and civic engagement. Our theme this year is “The City That Holds Us”. We invite you to imagine the city as generous instead of extractive – a frame that helps us better address staggering income inequality, decades-long housing crisis, devastating climate change, and inhumane violence against people of color. In this year’s festival, we reframe the city as reciprocal, we as inhabitants contribute to it, and it takes care of us by providing outlets for artistic expression, a stage for organizing political movements, places to build community through team sports, and inspiration for stories of human resilience. We believe in public policies and urban planning practices prioritizing human connection, instead of the current focus on efficiency and adding economic value.

  • 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.'"
