The Movies Seen Round the World 


Future Shorts, the largest worldwide pop-up film festival, returns to San Francisco with a selection of some of the best classic, cult, and award-winning short films from around the world, specially curated every three months by Future Shorts HQ in London. Anyone, anywhere can put together a screening of the feature-length program; San Francisco's joins film enthusiasts in Japan and Europe, and cities like Irkutsk, Russia, and Doha, Qatar. The Summer Season Program features Ireland Folk Furniture, a curious animated short that somehow makes magic of the difficult sentiments engrained in being Irish, as well as British Independent Film Award winner Volume. With small theaters closing all around the city (and country) as the number of moviegoers declines, special events like these keep worldwide film accessible to those looking to see something other than the limited fare that remaining theaters must stick with to keep afloat. A bar and snacks will also be provided.

  • 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.'"
