The longest-running film festival in the Americas, the San Francisco International Film Festival (SFFILM Festival) is an extraordinary showcase of cinematic discovery. Featuring some 150 films and live events at venues across the Bay Area, the landmark 60th anniversary ran April 5–19, and included more than 100 filmmakers in attendance. FORA.tv has been working with them for years and continues to power their most memorable events, along with a building a custom portal for them – SFFILM screening room. A notable live stream FORA.tv captured was Bollywood star, Shah Rukh Khan at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. FORA.tv also filmed and post-produced footage for the festival, including William Hearst’s interview about Citizen Kane. FORA.tv provided a dedicated editor who quickly turned around snippets of content for social media distribution.
