Join us for Superfest’s 32nd year! Superfest is the longest running festival of its kind in the world, showcasing an innovative range of juried short and feature-length films, organized by the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University and the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco. It enriches the Bay Area by cultivating an event that celebrates disability as a generative and creative force in cinema and more broadly in culture.
(Image description: A logo with the words “SUPERFEST DISABILITY FILM FESTIVAL,” to the left of a round shape which appears to resemble a film roll. Both the letters and symbol are dark blue, almost purple and highlighted with bold primary colors.)
In addition to ample space for wheelchairs, a friendly environment for service animals, and a scent-free environment, films will be audio described and captioned, striving for a welcoming environment for people with disabilities. ASL interpreting and live-captioning will be provided.
For additional accommodation requests, please contact Emily Beitiks at 415.405.3528.

The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University studies and showcases disabled people's experiences to revolutionize social views. Through public education, scholarship, and cultural events, the Institute shares disability history and theory, promotes critical thinking, and builds a broader community.
Founded in 1902, San Francisco’s Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired promotes the independence, equality, and self-reliance of people who are blind or have low vision. They offer blindness skills training and relevant services such as access to employment, education, government, information, recreation, transportation and the environment. They also pursue the development of new technology, encourage innovation, and amplify the voices of blind individuals around the world.
The CJM is committed to supporting the visibility of artists with disabilities through ongoing programs and lectures. We recognize that in order to build a more equitable and representative arts and cultural sector, the voices and lived experiences of people with disabilities need to be at the center of the conversation.
Access Programs are made possible by major support from Wells Fargo Foundation. Additional generous support is provided by The Morse Family Foundation.
