While it is easier than ever to share important and innovative content with the world, either via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or other social media platform, it is still not that easy to get attention for the content. The San Francisco Frozen Film Festival may be able to partly remedy that problem.
   
The San Francisco Frozen Film Festival is a nonprofit organization founded in 2006 that is dedicated to highlighting and nurturing the works of youth, independent filmmakers, artists from underserved communities, as well as filmmakers of conscience. Every summer, the organization holds an event at the Roxie Theatre in the Mission District to showcase these hidden filmmakers’ works.  Filmmakers participating compete for a series of awards, including Best Short Documentary, Best Surf/Skate Video, Best Experimental Film, and Best Comedic Film.
  
Past films shown at the festival have included “Circle of Poison” in 2016, which highlights the world’s pesticide problem; “My Mom’s Motorcycle” in 2015, which is a look at how objects connect people, places and ideas; as well as “Mindtrap” in 2014, which follows a woman as she wakes up on a cliff, paralyzed, with no memory of how she ended up there.
   
The “Frozen” portion of festival’s name comes from Mark Twain’s oft attributed quote, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” So, even though the festival takes place in the summer, the weather can be quite cool. The 2017 festival will be held July 20?23. Learn more at www.frozenfilmfestival.com.
