A few festival program highlights:

Come chill with the Friday night screening of the newly declassified UFO footage doc ’The Phoenix Incident’ that will really shed light on why the Westfield Mall stopped paying rent!

Stoker Machine, an award-winning animated surf documentary and Sports Fanatics, a documentary that explores the physical, mental, and social effects of being a sports fanatic, and their impact on sports filmed in the San Francisco Bay Area; or, Protecting the River Krupa, an exploration of Europe’s waterways and the countries that are rallying to protect the continent’s last free-flowing rivers—before it’s too late. All playing part of the Short Documentary Film Collection.

Las Muralistas: Our Walls, Our Stories a 25-minute documentary in partnership with SFMOMA featuring women muralists whose works cover the walls of San Francisco’s Mission District. Double Cultura, a story of a twelve year who takes on the overwhelming responsibility of being her immigrant mothers’ translator. Both are playing with ten other short films as part of the 2023 Bay Area Local Film Program.

Look Like You: a story of overcoming challenge and growing up as a queer outcast, and Boifriend, a story of a gay cis woman's father who is surprisingly happy when she brings her transmasc boyfriend home. Both play with other amazing films part of the LGBTQ+ Themed Short Program.

Hating Beckett A couple’s post-theater dinner date turns confrontational to the point of disclosed trauma, bitter recriminations and hurled bread rolls, and CUCKOO! an Absurd comedy about a lonely man who lives inside a cuckoo clock. Both play with other humorous films part of the 2023 Comedic Short Films collection.

Forgotten Fountains, an experimental documentary that harnesses Super 8mm and found 16mm footage to explore drinking fountains as a lens on the broader infrastructure crisis in the United States, and, Safe Passage (for Sheila), a look at living alone during the pandemic and challenging the femme fatale stereotype. The two and thirteen other thought provoking and compelling art films play part of the Experimental Short Film & Visual Art program.

SFFFF2023 is open to all ages and runs July 12th through July 16th. For more information about SFFFF2023 and this year’s Frozen Film Festival please visit
