SF IndieFest’s ‘Another Hole in the Head’ Film Festival is a two week cinematic excursion into the realms of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and assorted other genres.

Taking its cue from other legendary festivals such as Cannes, Sundance, and Crazy Steve’s Bootleg Basement Extravaganza, Another Hole in the Head pulls together a diverse collection of films representing all varieties and budgetary considerations. From your buddy Keith’s skateboarding footage in an enchanted forest, to Burt Reynolds in Space, to tomorrow’s cult classic destined for Lionsgate, Another Hole in the Head provides a unique vehicle for independent cinema.

180+ films—over 140 of which are Short Films–will screen at his year’s festival, which takes place December 1st – 15th at New People Cinema (1746 Post St), in San Francisco’s Japantown. This cinema is the festival’s theatrical home: a 143-seat underground venue, equipped with cutting-edge HD digital projection, 35mm film projection and a THX®-certified sound system.

General Admission is $15; $25 for Conan The Barbarian with Live Re-score performed by Sleepbomb. When you purchase our $150 All Access Festival Pass, you not only gain admission to every film in the festival, you also receive a complimentary limited-edition 2019 AHITH t-shirt—a $25 value!
