Webinar Registration - Zoom

One of the goals of the recently founded Archive Project in SF State University’s School of Cinema is to explore the school’s rich legacy of films that have been created by student and faculty of the past and present. That is why on Tuesday, May 4th at 6 PM, The Archive Project will be putting on a special one-time only screening of queer cinema made by students throughout SFState University’s long history. The presented short films showcase a variety of experiences and genres that speak to the complex history of LGBTQIA+ culture that can be found in San Francisco just by looking at artists who have gone through the university’s doors.

Dyketactics: 1974, 4 minutes, Barbara Hammer

Dear Rock: 1993, 18 minutes, Jack Walsh

Sambal Belacan in San Francisco: 1997, 25 minutes, Madeleine Lim

Muni to the Marriage: 2004, 5 minutes, Stuart Gaffney

At 7:20, a Q&A will be held on Zoom with the following filmmakers from the event: Jack Walsh (Dear Rock), Madeleine Lim (Sambal Belacan in San Francisco), Stuart Gaffney (Muni to the Marriage), and Jorge Oliver (Uranus in the Seventh House).

Organized by Ryan Mccandless.
