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.

54th San Francisco International Film Festival Presents Centerpiece Screening of Azazel Jacob's Touching Comedy 'Terri'

Director Azazel Jacobs and Actor Jacob Wysocki Expected to Attend
The 54th San Francisco International Film Festival (April 21–May 5) announced today that its Centerpiece screening will be Azazel Jacob’s heartfelt comedy Terri. The Festival’s Centerpiece is designed to showcase a celebrated young director and his or her latest film. Terri will screen 7:30 pmSaturdayApril 30 at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas followed by the Centerpiece party at 9:30 pm at CLIFT, Velvet Room. Director Azazel Jacobs and actor Jacob Wysocki are expected to attend the screening and party. 

With wit and affection, director Azazel Jacobs’ follow-up to his lauded film Momma’s Man (2008) surveys the myriad ways one might find oneself a struggling misfit. Terri is a heavy, shambling, pajama-wearing junior-high student, the physical incarnation of all the insecurity and awkwardness that accompany adolescence. We get to know the taciturn Terri as he cares for his ailing uncle, a man at turns gentle and derisive, conducts solitary experiments in zoology and pines for a girl just out of reach. When vice principal Fitzgerald (played with superb clarity and humor by John C. Reilly) tags Terri as an at-risk student, Terri joins the ranks of “official” oddballs and fears his school days are numbered. But instead a charmingly disjointed friendship forms between two outcasts: one young and one old. Awakened by Mr. Fitzgerald’s openness about his own past and his oddly direct, often corny conversations, Terri begins to empathize with the plight of those around him. Patrick deWitt’s screenplay depicts with precision and compassion a hilariously touching, deeply humane tale of youth in transition. What is especially remarkable about Terri is that it manages to bridge a potentially vast gulf between its deeply awkward outcasts and the audience. We end up walking with them every shambling step of the way. 

Following the screening, the Centerpiece party featuring the latest beats, cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres, will be held at 9:30 pm at CLIFT’s chic Velvet Room located at 495 Geary Street. Admission to the Centerpiece film and party is $25 for SFFS members/$30 general. Admission for the Centerpiece film only is $15 for SFFS members/$20 general. Must be 21+ to attend the party.
