54th San Francisco International Film Festival Presents New Series of Master Classes and Salons
Conversations Offer Opportunities for Deeper Audience Engagement with Festival Films and Filmmakers
The 54th San Francisco International Film Festival (April 21–May 5) will present two new Conversations series designed to deepen and enhance the Festival experience, giving filmgoers the opportunity to go a step beyond the post-screening Q&A. An extension of the Film Society’s year-round Film Craft & Film Studies program, Master Classes are an opportunity to engage with special Festival guests and get an insider’s look at intriguing cinema subjects. In the Salons, Bay Area film scholars and filmmakers will lead in-depth discussions about major film genres and prominent Festival themes.

All programs will take place in House 2 at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas.
