MISSION & OBJECTIVE

SF Indiefest is a year-round, non-profit organization that has been operating since 1998. We present three annual festivals: the SF Independent Film Festival (SF Indie for short), the SF Documentary Festival (DocFest for short) and Another Hole in the Head, our genre film festival. In the past we’ve presented Northern California Action Sports Film Festival, the US edition of the touring shnit International Short Film Festival and numerous music festivals and one off parties and events.

We are looking for the best features, shorts, docs and animation we can find to present in San Francisco. For 20 years SF IndieFest has developed a great reputation for filling theaters, getting press and throwing great parties. Films at our fest regularly get Variety reviews, picked up at other fests



ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

San Francisco's Another Hole in the Head Film Festival will run November 28th - December 10th 2018, at New People Cinema in San Francisco.

Our annual festival of horror, sci-fi, dark fantasy and exploitation cinema defies convention to bring you the most outrageous genre films from both emerging and established filmmakers. 15 days of celluloid mayhem not found in your local cineplex!

With this festival, we seek broader horizons than our original genre festival allows. All styles of independent film are welcome to compete. Whether it's a major production from a professional company, a student film, or a micro-budget labor of love, we are committed to giving each film due consideration.

We are located in a very receptive town for film, and we've built a passionate following over the years. 2018 will mark our 15th year among the most highly rated festivals in the world, and we're still growing!

San Francisco is one of the largest indie film markets in the country and a great promotional platform for indie filmmakers who are trying to get their film out into the world. Many films that screen at our festival spark the attention of other film festivals and film brokers/buyers. In addition, the films and the festival are reviewed by some of the top players in the industry, such as Variety, The San Francisco Chronicle, Dread Central, Bloody Disgusting, Twitch, and Way Too Indie, just to name a few.

Our "theatrical home" is New People Cinema in San Francisco's Japantown. A 143-seat underground venue located in the New People Building, the Cinema is equipped with cutting-edge HD digital projection, 35mm film projection and a THX®-certified sound system. New People Cinema hosts many local film festivals including the San Francisco International Film Festival, CAAMFest, Green Film Festival, and the Japan Film Festival of San Francisco.

“San Francisco’s original genre film festival is characterized by a scrappy, DIY aesthetic that eschews big studio content and recent trends towards elevated genre. Holehead’s programming remains curatorially committed to the genre’s graphic roots in shockploitation, visceral thrills and gleeful mayhem.” – Michael Guillen, The Evening Class

"After attending most of the genre offerings at SFindiefest, I was more than a little excited for their genre counterpart, Another Hole in the Head. The fest is in its lucky 13th year, but is still totally dedicated to celebrating little and local films. With a plethora of new, unseen, and unreleased genre films, buffed up by exciting retrospective screenings and musical events, I must say: Another Hole in the Head is awesome."
- Madeleine Koestner, FANGORIA
