Cinema by the Bay celebrates the passion, innovation and diversity of Bay Area filmmaking, the intelligence and probing spirit of local directors and the incredible depth and breadth of America’s film and media frontier. The four-day festival will feature new work produced in or about the San Francisco Bay Area and provide a compelling window into Bay Area film culture and practice at its best. CBTB includes features, shorts, narratives, documentaries and live performances from well-known and emerging local talent, and explores the rich experimental traditions of the Bay Area by copresenting the San Francisco Cinematheque’s tribute to one of its key figures: Chick Strand.
