SFAI presents a program at SFMOMA of works by graduating MFA Film students, offering an introduction to intriguing new filmmakers. From an experimental documentary about the Occupy movement to an animated short starring an otter and lemur living in a submarine, the films highlight the artists’ engaged and idiosyncratic approaches. The event is free and open to the public.
Take advantage of the educational opportunities at the museum. Pop on a headset, download the iPhone tour, or grab a docent – all offered for free with your ticket.
On free admission days, crowds are large and lines are long. For a better overall experience, come on a Thursday evening for half-price admission.
"Team up with a friend and split a dual membership. Each one of you get a membership card that admits yourself and a guest."
“In the 21st century, it is our mandate to create groundbreaking, original, and hybrid storytelling,” says Lynn Hershman Leeson, Film Department Chair. “We are proud to screen works by students who incorporate the spirit of experimental cinema, which artists at the San Francisco Art Institute pioneered, into unique and compelling cinematic visions.”
