Not just for kids, but also the young at heart, our Shorts 5: Family Films program truly has something for everyone. One of the most popular film series at #SFIFF, this year’s lineup includes the newest short from Pixar, Lava, as well as a wide spread of animated films. Music also finds it’s way into many of this year’s selections, including the world premiere of Aria for a Cow, featuring a never-before heard song from award-winning collaborators Howard Ashman & Alan Menken. After films screen, we host Q&As and meet-and-greets, where you’ll have the chance to chat with filmmakers. This year’s guest list is overflowing, with 6 of the 11 films represented. Pictured: Lila, a short by Carlos Lascano.

Our #WCW: the incomparable #IsabellaRossellini. Catch her and director #JodyShapiro at the April 26 & 27 screenings of Isabella Rossellini's Green Porno Live!, a doc that features segments from her intelligent (and hilarious) sex & nature series #GreenPorno and includes behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the show. Thrilled that #SFIFF will host the world premiere of this film.

Feeling ready to take on Monday? The week's climb has only just begun! Thankfully, none of the challenges ahead daunt nearly as much as those faced in #Meru, the #Sundance Audience Award winning doc that traces the journey of three world-class mountaineers as they attempt to become the first humans to ascend the 21,000 foot Himalayan peak from which the film takes its name. A hybrid of gorgeous nature photography, riveting nonfictional storytelling and unexpected narrative twists, you won't want to miss this jaw-dropping documentary at #SFIFF.

Hosting out of towners this weekend? Likely none as out there as these guys, members of the Unarius Brotherhood, who in the 70s & 80s were on a mission to spread their “interdimensional science of life” and the principles of reincarnation via some of the most wildly inventive public access TV programming ever. With otherworldly costumes and makeup, guerrilla location-filming techniques, elaborate sets and no-budget special effects, this ambitious collective produced some of the most mind-shattering, oddly uplifting gems of American outsider cinema. Curious about these guys? Catch them, some of their films and Unarius researcher/#Cinefamily LA programmer Jodi Wille at #SFIFF's Welcome, Space Brothers at Sundance Kabuki Cinemas on May 2.
