Truth and Fantasy: A Night of Queer SFSU Cinema (1988-1999)
May 7th, 5:00pm - 7:00pm PST
Location: August Coppola Theatre, 1600 Holloway Ave, San Francisco, CA 94132. Located at Floor One of the Fine Arts Building of San Francisco State University.
This screening presents several queer short films made by San Francisco State University Cinema alumni throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s.
It’s a part of The Archive Project’s mission to explore the archives and highlight the larger cinematic history within our community. These films cover numerous genres, subjects and methods of filmmaking, aligned in their common goal of showing the diversity and limitlessness of what a queer cinema can contain. Q&A with filmmakers follows the screening.

Proof of vaccination is required and will be checked at the doors.
Masks are also required to be worn at all times inside the venue and inside all San Francisco State University Buildings.
SF State strives to align its COVID-19 health and safety requirements with local requirements whenever possible. To that end, SF State requires visitors, including paid performing artists, to campus venues like indoor dining spaces, indoor athletic events, performance spaces, and meeting rooms to present proof of an up-to-date vaccine. Masks are required to be worn at all times at the venue and inside all San Francisco State University Buildings.
A person is considered up-to-date on vaccination two weeks after completing the full initial course of an approved vaccine until they are eligible for a booster. Once eligible for a booster, a person is considered up-to-date on vaccination one week after receiving their booster. For adults, this means receiving an additional dose of Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson and Johnson five months after receiving a second dose of Moderna vaccine or Pfizer vaccine, or two months after receiving a single dose of Johnson and Johnson. For adolescents age 12 to 17, this means receiving a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine six months after receiving their second Pfizer dose.
San Francisco State University welcomes persons with disabilities and will provide reasonable accommodations upon request. If you would like reasonable accommodations for this event, please contact email@example.com as soon as possible so your request may be reviewed.
