San Francisco Black Film Festival XXII "Virtually Possible" June 18-August 2
Social distancing is the World's Changed Reality Yet The San Francisco Black Film Festival "Healing the World One Film At A Time" Goes on "Virtually."
Announcing its twenty-second year, amid the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the multicultural San Francisco Black Film Festival will be screening films from around the world virtually, June 18 through August 2, 2020.
"Given our changed world, The San Francisco Black Film Festival XXII has adjusted based on our new reality," said Kali O'Ray. "The Coronavirus, although regrettable, has resulted in some positive things as we are cloistered in our homes, young and old. Devouring media together creates family discussions and growth, O'Ray added. "Workers are breaking out of the 'brick and mortar' of going back to work and that is a path for entertainment as well, especially among young people, as I see it."
"The San Francisco Black Film Festival is flipping the script during this grave time in America and the world. 'The show must go on' on despite the worldwide pandemic. There is that old saying that something is "virtually impossible; yet The San Francisco Black Film Festival is 'Virtually, Possible,'" said Katera Crossley, Festival Co-Director with her husband Kali O'Ray. We are celebrating twenty-two years of bringing films from the African Diaspora from around the world to San Francisco to create positive dialogue between people about universal human experiences and as a result giving people a better understanding of each other."
The virtual film festival will have a variety of independent films from drama to comedy over a two-week period. The San Francisco Black Film Festival will revisit some of the most popular films over its twenty-two year history. Families can enjoy the traditional family-friendly prices of the San Francisco Black Film Festival.
