SF Urban Film Fest: Wisdom Lives in Places

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The SF Urban Film Fest is proud to announce its lineup for the 7th Annual SF Urban Film Fest, Wisdom Lives in Places, taking place February 14-21, 2021. Amidst our new reality, the need to address our most pressing urban issues is more necessary than ever before. This year our programming suggests the way forward is to honor the wisdom that's been here, long before 2020, from folks who have been resilient in the face of adversity, showing us how not only to survive but to thrive.

"SF Urban Film Fest has always been a space to uplift the diverse voices of the city," says Fay Darmawi, Founder and Executive Director of the SF Urban Film Fest. "In pursuing our mission in the new world presented by COVID-19, we are finding ways to keep the civic spark alive by meeting community members where they're at. We're asking our audience members this year: What can you find that's always been there in yourself? How can you use it in a new way to be part of and make a more vibrant, equitable community? "

The festival will experiment with different ways to engage with ideas and knowledge sharing. Programs will predominantly take place digitally on a diverse set of platforms including SF Urban Film Fest's website, with some conversations held through Youtube, and other special programs on Zoom. Additionally, featured as part of the festival is a site-specific installation in collaboration with YBCA, which locals can view in a socially distant public setting.
