Support SFDFF

SFDFF Home

Two months ago, we concluded our most successful festival to date. Accolades and warm wishes were shared by all those who attended and participated in the screenings and events throughout October. The response confirmed that we were connecting audiences with the creators of this wonderful art form in a meaningful and engaging way.

Your support is instrumental to our existence and growth. If you liked what we presented, please consider making an inaugural or additional contribution and become a partner as we plan for an exciting 2018. We sincerely THANK YOU for any donation.
