Scary Cow Film Festival

October 05 only

Come out Saturday, October 5th to celebrate the newest batch of short films made by local filmmakers. You’re invited to watch and vote for your favorite films. The top-voted films will receive budget awards for future projects!

Scary Cow is a collective of filmmakers ranging from beginner to pro. Our films are a wide range of genres and a lot of fun to both make and watch! We believe the best way to learn to make films is to actually get out there and make films. Every six months, we watch the films we create together at a historic SF theater.

All ticket proceeds go directly to fund future films made by our members.

Tickets are available in limited quantities, so purchase quickly as we will sell out!!

There are TWO ticket levels available for purchase.

1) Per Phase Ticket $10

– This ticket level grants you access to either Phase 1 or Phase 2, subject to availability. If you attend Phase 1 at 2pm, you must relinquish your seat at intermission. If you purchase Phase 2, you will be admitted before Phase 2 starts between 3-3:15pm. Purchase one of each if you would like to attend the whole screening.

3) Festival Pass $25

The Festival Pass gets you entry to the entire screening in addition to:
– Entrance to the Scary Cow After Party held at 518 Valencia at ~6pm
– Complimentary beer, wine, non-alcoholic drinks at the party!
– Mingle with the filmmakers and talk about your next great project!
– Members of Scary Cow at the annual subscription level get one free Festival Pass to every screening while they are a member

Please note that some films screened may contain content that is inappropriate for children. Print programs at the festival will specify which films are All Ages versus Teen and Older.
