Guillermo del Toro, will receive the SF Honors award for his bold artistry in the upcoming film, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio


A Special Guest Will Moderate Tribute Conversation with Award-Winner, Guillermo del Toro on November 9 in San Francisco

SFFILM today announced Mexican-born filmmaker, screenwriter, producer, author and Academy Award®-winning director, Guillermo del Toro, will receive the SF Honors award for his bold artistry in the upcoming film, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio. SF Honors showcases exciting new work from singular filmmakers, historically presenting sneak peeks and premieres for Bay Area audiences. This event is made possible by support from SFFILM Board Member Todd Traina and philanthropist Diane B. Wilsey, and is presented in partnership with Netflix. 


“It is truly our honor to welcome Guillermo del Toro back to SFFILM to recognize him and his latest film Pinocchio with the SF Honors award. It celebrates his dedication to innovation within film, and his fearlessness when it comes to reforming and transforming visual languages,” said SFFILM’s Executive Director, Anne Lai. "His energetic passion and skill to create novel experiences for audiences sets the bar exceedingly high and could not be a better embodiment of the spirit of SF Honors."


Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio reimagines the classic tale of the fabled wooden boy who, looking for a place in this world during turbulent times, finds himself on an enchanted adventure transcending worlds and discovering the life-giving power of love and the precious nature of human existence. Together, and with a star-studded cast of writers and voices including Gregory Mann (Pinnochio), Ewan McGregor (Cricket), Cate Blanchett (Spazzatura) among many others, del Toro and Gustafson have catapulted the beloved tale into a reinvigorated visual space.


SFFILM will host del Toro for a tribute conversation with a special guest moderator, on Wednesday, November 9 at 7 pm PT at the Dolby Cinema, 1275 Market Street, a post-screening Q&A will follow. Tickets are $30 for SFFILM Members and $35 for general and can be purchased at


SF Honors is part of the fall series SFFILM Presents and caps off a season that included a free screening of Adamma Ebo’s Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. with Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown in person in August; a September sneak peek of Andrew Dominik’s Blonde, with Hair and Makeup Department Heads Jaime Leigh McIntosh and Tina Roesler Kerwin in attendance; a tribute to Gina Prince-Bythewood with a screening of The Woman King with composer Terence Blanchard presenting the award to Gina prior to a tribute conversation; and the upcoming screening of Charlotte Wells’s debut feature Aftersun featuring the director herself in person.
