San Francisco has more film festivals than any other city in the country besides New York. In fact, the oldest film festival still running anywhere in the Americas is the San Francisco International Film festival - started in 1957. But San Francisco is also know as a progressive, activist city. Is there a connection between San Francisco’s activism and its love for independent cinema? What makes film such a powerful tool? And when art combines with public policy, do filmmakers have a responsibility more in line with journalists than artists?
