The “City That Holds Us” theme inspires our 5th annual week-long SF Urban Film Fest, November 11-18, 2018. The city holds us because its inhabitants contribute to its well being as much as the city takes care of us. It holds us by providing outlets for artistic expression, a stage for organizing political movements, places to build community through team sports, and inspiration for stories of human resilience.
Reconsidering the city as a reciprocal organism is important because the prevailing model of city as economic engine has failed us. We invite you to imagine the city as generous instead of extractive - a frame that helps us better address staggering income inequality, decades-long housing crisis, devastating climate change, and inhumane violence against people of color. We believe in public policies and urban planning practices prioritizing human connection, instead of the current focus on efficiency and adding economic value.
