About the SBFF
The SBFF’s mission is to celebrate African-American cinema and the African cultural diaspora, while showcasing a diverse collection of (short and full-length feature) films from emerging and established filmmakers. This is accomplished by presenting back films, which reinforce positive images and dispel negative stereotypes. We provide a forum for the work of film artists from around the world — particularly the Bay Area — to be viewed and discussed.
SFBFF believes film can lead to a better understanding of and communication between, people of diverse cultures, races and lifestyles, while simultaneously serving as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.
