Join SPUR for the fifth annual SF Urban Film Fest, a week-long film festival that celebrates cities and civic engagement. Our theme this year is “The City That Holds Us”. We invite you to imagine the city as generous instead of extractive – a frame that helps us better address staggering income inequality, decades-long housing crisis, devastating climate change, and inhumane violence against people of color. In this year’s festival, we reframe the city as reciprocal, we as inhabitants contribute to it, and it takes care of us by providing outlets for artistic expression, a stage for organizing political movements, places to build community through team sports, and inspiration for stories of human resilience. We believe in public policies and urban planning practices prioritizing human connection, instead of the current focus on efficiency and adding economic value.
Some film screenings and panel discussion events include “Protest and Celebration in Our Shared Spaces” at the Roxie Theater, “Street Art as Political Currency” at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and “The Stories We Will Tell: Interactive Media and Placemaking” including exciting live performance and VR at SOMArts.
