The San Francisco International Film Festival is presented each spring by the San Francisco Film Society. A showcase for approximately 200 new features, documentaries and shorts, the Festival is dedicated to highlighting current trends in international film and video production.
The SFIFF has two components:
* The Golden Gate Awards, the competitive section for documentaries, shorts, animation, experimental and television production.
* The invitational, noncompetitive section for recent narrative features, archival presentations, retrospectives and special awards and tributes recognizing individual achievement.
