66th San Francisco International Film Festival – Call for Entry 2023

Dear Asian filmmakers, the San Francisco International Film Festival (USA) is accepting feature films until December 2, 2023.

About the festival:
The San Francisco International Film Festival (SFFILM Festival) is an essential stop on the circuit for emerging storytellers and established filmmakers alike. The Bay Area’s premier film event and the longest running film festival in the Americas, the SFFILM Festival is deeply rooted in the culture of film appreciation—film as an art form and as a meaningful force for social change. The Festival is an important showcase for the most vibrant and innovative films from around the globe.
