The Film Society is continuing a tradition of highlighting local work begun by the Film Arts Foundation, which showcased local independent filmmaking from 1984-2005. Last August, the Film Society underwent a reorganization and through an agreement with Film Arts Foundation is now overseeing programs that serve filmmakers directly.
The most recent edition of the Film Society's San Francisco International Film Festival featured 22 local narrative and documentary feature and short films.
