City College of San Francisco Presents: 

The 4th Annual Festival of the Moving Image

The Camera’s Still Rolling

Come celebrate the best of Bay Area student media at City College of San Francisco’s Festival of the Moving Image (FMI). FMI is two unique showcases of works from the college’s Cinema and Broadcast Electronic Media Arts (BEMA) departments. The night’s two programs each feature selections from both departments.

FMI includes work from City Shorts, an annual Cinema department student-run film festival that showcases the innovative work of the department’s students. It also features diverse selections from BEMA, and excerpts from IDTV, a televised, student-produced magazine show that covers a wide range of engaging topics.

FMI presents two rich, unique programs in one night, and gives CCSF’s emerging talents a chance to gain exposure in the Bay Area community at San Francisco’s historic Roxie Theater.

THE TRAIL RUNNING FILM FEST
November 30, 2014

Unknown

9139313A night of inspiring trail running films, with good friends and good beer.
Those of you who have run a Rainshadow race know that we’re all about community and celebrating the greater community of trail-lovers. We bring the same laid-back enthusiasm and trail-loving camaraderie to showcasing trail running films of all shapes, sizes, and varieties as we do to our dynamic and beloved Northwest trail race series.6411936

And, like our races, we also feature local beer and good friends. There are a lot of talented filmmakers in this close-knit and extended trail community, and we wanted to create a way to showcase everything we love so much about trail running while simultaneously highlighting local, regional, national, and international filmmakers. Thus, The Trail Running Film Fest was born. We had an extremely successful debut tour throughout the Northwest in March of 2014, and we’re back again – this time to bring you a nation-wide tour kicking off in the fall of 2014.

5803493_origWe hope you’ll join us for an unforgettable evening of trail films, good beer, and great friends!

THE FOUND FOOTAGE FESTIVAL
December 11, 2014 - December 12, 2014

fff_logo

fff_vol7_300x250The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event that showcases footage from videos that were found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters across the country.

Curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher take audiences on a guided tour of their latest and greatest VHS finds, providing live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these videotaped obscurities. From the curiously-produced industrial training video to the forsaken home movie donated to Goodwill, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.

fff_crowdThe Found Footage Festival was founded in New York in 2004 and has gone on to sell out hundreds of shows across the U.S. and Canada, including the HBO Comedy Festival in Las Vegas and the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. The festival has been featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, National Public Radio and has been named a critic’s pick in dozens of publications, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle and The Chicago Tribune. The FFF can also be seen twice a week in a popular web series on The Onion’s A.V. Club, in the hit documentary “Winnebago Man,” and in their book, “VHS: Absurd, Odd and Ridiculous Relics from the Videotape Era.”
