From Argentina to New Zealand, Turkey to Mexico, these dazzling live-action and animated stories are both universal and inter-generational. It’s a global exploration for the whole family, as well as a chance to see Pixar’s newest animated short The Blue Umbrella. Showing at the Sundance Kabuki Theatre Sunday, May 5 at 10:30 am.

Shorts 7: Youth Works – It would be no exaggeration to say that the quality of work produced by teen filmmakers improves year upon year, from their technical prowess to the quality of their storytelling. And this year’s crop of emerging young filmmakers includes many SFIFF alumni, demonstrating both their consistency and their commitment to the form. Join us in celebrating today’s rising talents! Showing at the New People Cinema Saturday, April 27 at 1 pm. Recommended ages: 13+

The 56th San Francisco International Film Festival is fast approaching, running this year April 25 – May 9. I'm working in the Publicity Department for the festival and would love to get acquainted and work with you to facilitate coverage of SFIFF56 on Frisco Kids, specifically covering the family-friendly films and events that the festival will be hosting.
