Note that some films will sell fast/sell out. Some of these events are already on rush status, which means you’ll have to show up at the doors to try to squeeze in. Berkeley’s Pacific Film Archive is also running some of the SFIFF films, so head over to the site to find out which ones you can watch closer to home.
