El Salvador: so far from Hollywood, but ever so close to reality. That’s why the Ana Gomez Cultural Collective and the Mission Cultural Center have teamed up to produce the Inaugural San Francisco – El Salvador Film and Video Festival. Because el Pulgaricito (as El Salvador is affectionately known) might be small in size, but it’s got big history-and talented film and video-makers to make sense of it all. Join us for three days… packed with documentaries, shorts, and animation – all from Salvadoran directors.

El Salvador: tan lejos de Hollywood, pero tan cerca a la realidad. Por eso el Colectivo Cultural Ana Gomez y el Centro Cultural de la Misión se unen para celebrar el primer festival de cine y video Salvadoreño en San Francisco.
Por el Pulgarcito es pequeño, pero su historia es grande– y tiene talentosos cineastas para hacernos entenderlo. Disfrute tres días repletos de documentales, cortometrajes, y animación — todo hecho por directores salvadoreños.

Rooftop Accepting Submissions for the 2011 Summer Series.

The 2011 Summer Series will run from May through September and will feature more than 200 daring new films, all screened outdoors, in front of big, loyal audiences in parks, on boats, and on rooftops overlooking the greatest city in the world. In 2010 we also organized 10 outdoor shows in Toronto, Philadelphia, Pittsburg and other cities all across the Northeast, and we plan to continue our expansion across the U.S in 2011. Nearly 30,000 people attended Rooftop screenings in 2010, making it one of the most popular festivals in New York City and one of the biggest festivals for underground films in the world. The 2011 Summer Series will surely feature even bigger crowds, even more beautiful venues, and even more incredible films.
