The 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World, 2019

MovieMaker Coolest Film Festival Festivals

San Francisco International Film Festival 

April 10-23, 2019 / San Francisco, California / sffilm.org

The longest-running film festival in the Americas, dating back to 1957, SFIFF has screened over 5,000 features, docs, and shorts and presents 200 films from over 50 countries. It also prides itself on being one of the Bay Area’s premiere cultural events and a repository of film history (at a SFIFF tribute in his honor in 1974, Truman Capote told the crowd he felt Audrey Hepburn had been miscast as Holly Golightly). Venues include an Alamo Drafthouse theater and an electronic arts facility. Says one panelist: “SFFILM is constantly evolving with its year-round grants and programs, culminating in a festival that holds screenings at places like the dream movie box that is the SFMOMA’s Cinematheque and the legendary Castro, where I saw the Kronos Quartet perform the live score to The Green Fog. There’s room enough for thought, dreaming, and everything in between.”

    The Artis Center in Naples, Fl is really extraordinary. It’s the hub of performing arts, music, and film in Southwest Florida. It’s the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Symphony all in one – with art and entertainment for all ages. One of the things that impressed me most was the cultural campus for children, with programs for art and music in the form of summer camps, infusing art and music (and the importance of it) at a young age.
