In addition to its films, SFDFF will host a wide range of virtual programming, celebrating its diverse group of filmmakers and investigating the many forms of screendance. Four signature talks will be made available to the public in advance of the festival opening, including a discussion with REVISOR director/actor Jonathon Young and dancer Tiffany Tregarthen. The festival then kicks off on Sunday 18 October with a live-streamed red carpet opening, featuring international filmmakers and celebrity guests. Additional bonus content for attendees during the run of the festival includes live celebrations featuring mixologists and DJs and additional Q&As with festival filmmakers.
