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.

New Directors Prize—A juried cash award of $10,000 to the director of a first narrative feature at the Festival.

FIPRESCI Prize—Awarded by the International Federation of Film Critics. SFIFF is only one of three festivals in the U.S. selected to present this prestigious award.

Audience Awards—For Best Narrative and Best Documentary Features

SFIFF is an Academy Award®–qualifying festival for all three short film categories: documentary, live action and animated.

CBTB was programmed by Sean Uyehara and Audrey Chang, who describes this year’s program saying, “We had a blast viewing exciting new works and were impressed by the variety and unique sensibilities coming from the Bay Area. These films reflect local filmmaking at its finest.”

Cinema by the Bay is an essential element of the Film Society’s year-round programs highlighting Bay Area film culture. SFFS has long celebrated films produced in the creative heart of the West, giving Golden Gate Awards to Bay Area documentaries and shorts, and four years ago inaugurating a dedicated Cinema by the Bay section in the annual San Francisco International Film Festival. The most recent edition of the International featured 24 local narrative and documentary feature and short films, capping a total of 137 local films showcased at SFIFF since the section’s inception. With a dedicated fall festival, the Film Society continues the tradition established by Film Arts Foundation, which from 1984 to 2005 programmed the Bay Area’s most dynamic showcase of local independent filmmaking with its Festival of Independent Cinema.
