Scary Cow Independent Film Festival

April 06 only

Come out Saturday, April 6th 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.

We’d love for you to be a part of our community and join us for the screening. Everyone is welcome. Support local filmmaking right here in the Bay Area!

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

We’ll be following up our screening with an After Party around the corner at 518 Valencia. Be sure to buy a Festival Pass if you would like to attend!
