Difficult to confront, tempting to look away, we encourage you to experience with courage, the films at the 3rd annual SF Urban Film Fest which unflinchingly pose to audiences the challenge of creating just cities. The films leave it up to us to arrive at our own conclusions, and simultaneously provoke us to take action.

The SF Urban Film Fest (SFUFF) is a unique film festival that focuses on cities and civic engagement inspired by great storytelling. The festival believes compelling stories can help shape urbanist ideas, practice, and project implementation to improve our cities.
SFUFF is organized by urban planners and screens films in tandem with panel discussions and storytelling workshops. Our 3rd annual week-long festival will be November 14-20, 2016.
