Our History

Film Finals is the School of Cinema’s annual showcase of the best films made by Cinema students at San Francisco State University during the academic year — and the City’s premiere student cinema event.

Beginning in the 1960s, Film Finals is a celebration of SFSU’s rich cinematic heritage, a heritage that has seen alumni earn Oscar nominations for fifteen consecutive years. It is also a supportive vessel for this emerging talent to exhibit their innovative work to the public, often for the very first time.


“A night of film at its scrappy, heartfelt essence.”
