Tuesday, May 19
Reception at 6:00pm
Festival at 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Diego Rivera Theater

The students, faculty and staff of the Cinema Department at City College of San Francisco announce the 16th Annual City Shorts Student Film Festival.

City Shorts stands out as one of most unique film festivals in the Bay Area. The festival is programmed, designed and executed by students enrolled in the Film Exhibition class and brings in a standing room only audience to the college’s 200 seat Historic Diego River Theater.

Experience the spirit of truly independent filmmaking. The City College of San Francisco’s Cinema Department nurtures talented filmmakers from the ground up, with a curriculum that rigorously covers theory to advanced cinematography, directing, editing, sound design and VFX.

The culmination of CINE 40 (a hands on film exhibition class) is clearly displayed as the students organize everything from the call for entries and creation of festival poster and collateral materials, prescreen and help select the best of the works submitted to this highly competitive competition, run tech, prepare show reels, fundraise and event plan. Students are supported in their efforts by noted members of the local film community, who come in to help jury the finalists.

We are pleased to announce this years jurors include City College Cinema Department faculty Mike Shannon, John Carlson and Anna Geyer in collaboration with film community luminaries Jesse Hawthorne Ficks (Organizer/host of Midnites for Maniacs and film critic) and Lu Ramirez (Cine+Mas SF Founder).


6. Job Training at the CCSF Mission Campus

The CCSF Mission Center offers a variety of certificate programs in fields such as Visual Media Design, Computer, and Child Development that begin in Fall 2016. Please see the attached flyer for details.


7. Associated Student Council & Student Trustee Elections

The Associated Student Council and Student Trustee Elections will take place on Wednesday, May 11 and Thursday, May 12 at various locations across the District. Please visit the elections webpage for candidate information, polling times, and polling locations for each Campus/Center. Students will need a picture ID in order to vote. 


8. Graduation Celebration: Latin American and Latino/a Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Women's Studies - May 11

On Wednesday evening, May 11, the Latin American and Latino/a Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Women’s Studies departments will hold a joint Graduation Celebration in Visual Arts 115. We will recognize AA degree, scholarship and certificate earners in our departments.

After the celebration, we’ll screen the documentary film "Mariela Castro’s March: Cuba’s LGBT Revolution" – conceived and produced by Saul Landau.

Please join us to celebrate the successes of our students and engage in our communities’ ongoing struggles for social justice!

6:00 – 6:30PM    Reception
6:30 – 7:45PM    Honoring the AA degree  and certificate completers
8:00 – 9:00 PM   Mariela Castro’s March: Cuba’s LGBT Revolution, introduced by Grammy Award nominee, CCSF instructor Greg Landau, and followed by a discussion led by LALS chair Edgar Torres

The film’s director Jon Alpert spent 3 years making "Mariela Castro’s March," which was dedicated to filmmaker Saul Landau who had the initial idea for the documentary. It follows Mariela Castro (often with husband Juan by her side) in her quest to lead the LGBT movement in present-day Cuba. Throughout her travels in central and rural Cuba, crowds scream her name and cheer her on – not because she is the daughter of Raúl and niece of Fidel – but because of her tireless support of LGBT issues and equal rights. Ms. Castro was the first ever member of Cuba’s Parliament to vote “no” on an equal rights initiative because it did little to support those with HIV or gender identity issues.
