What's the best way to eat tomatoes while jogging?
How do sheep dogs learn to herd sheep?
What is radical mycology?
Is ice cream good for you?

All these and so many more mind-expanding questions will be asked and answered during this year's opening night shorts program. Take a journey with us through 18 short films guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, and head for the kitchen.

San Francisco's one and only Food & Farm Film Fest offers a place for the food and art worlds of San Francisco to collide. We’re in this to have fun, as well as ask tough questions about our food system. The festival is a celebration of food and farming and film, as well as a challenge to our ideas about how we think about food and farms. All proceeds from the Fest benefit our Cooking Matters program.


Many thanks to our partners and sponsors!
