Founded in 1957, SFIFF is the longest-running film festival in the Americas. Refreshingly intimate for a festival of its size and scope, the Festival combines a range of marquee premieres, international competitions, compelling documentaries, new digital media work, live music performances and star-studded gala events.

SFIFF is dedicated to celebrating creativity, inspiration, collaboration and innovation and is deeply rooted in the finest traditions of film appreciation both as an art form and as a meaningful agent for social change. SFIFF 2013 presented 263 screenings of 158 films from 51 countries, and brought more than 200 filmmaker and industry guests to the Festival from more than 20 countries around the globe. Tens of thousands of enthusiastic filmgoers flocked to San Francisco to celebrate the best of international cinema.

The Festival’s awards and prizes recognize the best of international and Bay Area talent by honoring superior innovation in documentary, narrative, animation, experimental and television works.

Golden Gate Awards—Including juried awards for Best Documentary Feature with a $10,000 prize; Best Bay Area Documentary Feature with a $5,000 prize; and awards totaling more than $10,000 in other categories of shorts, youth-produced and family films.

New Directors Prize—A juried cash award of $10,000 to the director of a first narrative feature at the Festival.

FIPRESCI Prize—Awarded by the International Federation of Film Critics. SFIFF is only one of three festivals in the U.S. selected to present this prestigious award.

Audience Awards—For Best Narrative and Best Documentary Features

SFIFF is an Academy Award®–qualifying festival for all three short film categories: documentary, live action and animated.

The San Francisco Film Society has long been a proponent of Taiwanese
cinema and has played a pioneering role in introducing it to Bay Area
audiences through the San Francisco International Film Festival, which
has shown over 40 Taiwanese films over the years. The works of the
leading figures—Hou Hsiao-hsien, Tsai Ming-liang and Edward Yang—have
been featured, and prominent actor Lee Kang-sheng was a Festival guest
in 1998. In January 1999 the Film Society partnered with the Asian Art
Museum to present the unique retrospective An Unfolding Horizon: the
Films of Hou Hsiao-hsien. The championing of Taiwanese national cinema
was augmented last year by the introduction of Taiwan Film Days to the
Film Society’s Fall Season.

From Taiwanese opening weekend box
office champ Monga to Let’s Fall
in Love
, a documentary that examines the foibles of
contemporary matchmaking, to a return engagement of the experimental
black-and-white David-versus-Goliath drama No Puedo Vivir
sin Ti
, Taiwan Film Days 2010 showcases the breadth of
style and subject of this vibrant filmmaking industry, while providing a
snapshot of modern Taiwanese society and culture.
