Help Us Assemble the Festival's History

Whether you are a diehard Festival attendee, a devoted volunteer with a trove of great Festival stories or a former SFIFF staffer, we want to hear your reminiscences and recollections from Festivals past. We invite you to write up a memorable anecdote from your Festival experiences in the form below (* all fields required). If you have any questions about this project, email Miguel Pendas.

We need the help of volunteers and interns in the Festival's archives to help with logging data, organizing files and preparing materials. If you'd like to help, contact Miguel Pendas.
