“We’re returning to our roots,” says SAFILM Founder and Executive Director Adam Rocha, who celebrated last year’s 26th annual festival virtually due to the pandemic. “It’s time to bring back the intimate screenings, safely, like we did in the old days, and celebrate our filmmakers who were cheated from showcasing their work to a REAL audience.”
