SF IndieFest's "Another Hole in the Head" will run October 25th - November 8th 2017, at New People Cinema in San Francisco.

Another Hole in the Head (a.k.a. “HoleHead”), is a genre film festival celebrating Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy from across the globe. Defying convention, we also consider films from related genres, including Action, Exploitation, Mystery, Thriller, Animation, and Art/Experimental efforts. In addition, we have awards for best Comedy and best Documentary.

As a subsidiary of the San Francisco Independent Film Festival (“SF IndieFest”), our primary focus is independent film. Whether it's a major production from a professional company, a student film, or a micro-budget labor of love, we are committed to giving each film due consideration.

We are located in a very receptive town for film, and our fest has built a passionate following over the years. 2017 will mark our fourteenth year among the most highly rated genre fests in the world, and we're still growing! At our 12th annual fest in 2015, we screened 27 features and 87 short films, while garnering a 20% increase in attendance over the previous year.

San Francisco is the second largest film market in the country and a great promotional platform for indie filmmakers who are trying to get their film out into the world. Many films that screen at our festival spark the attention of other film festivals and film brokers/buyers. In addition, the films and the festival are reviewed by some of the top players in the industry, such as Variety, The San Francisco Chronicle, Dread Central, Bloody Disgusting, Twitch, and Way Too Indie, just to name a few.

Our "theatrical home" is New People Cinema in San Francisco's Japantown. A 143-seat underground venue located in the New People Building, the Cinema is equipped with cutting-edge HD digital projection, 35mm film projection and a THX®-certified sound system. New People Cinema hosts many local film festivals including the San Francisco International Film Festival, CAAMFest, Green Film Festival, and the Japan Film Festival of San Francisco.
