The Brainwash Movie Festival 10/27-29/2023!

Join us for the 29th Annual Brainwash Movie Festival At the New Farm, a San Francisco iconic venue. Showing an eclectic collection of mostly short, fiercely independent movies, the weekend (Oct. 27-29) promises to be a true eye-opener for cinephiles, the ultra-casual spectator and inspiration for other movie producers.

And please sign up for our Bay Area Film, TV and Commercial Meet Up group to contribute to our ongoing fundraising there. See this and all of our upcoming events. Help support keeping Independent Arts Alive! Thank You!
