The San Francisco Underground Shorts Film Festival – programmed by Peaches Christ & Sam Sharkey

The San Francisco Underground Shorts Film Festival is a unique event that plays host to short films you will not be able to watch anywhere else. It takes pride in showing very sexy films that are the epitome of Underground. These films show things other films dare not. They are critical, powerful, outlandish, and bizarre.

The 67-minute long program will be followed by a conversation with Joshua Grannell (aka Peaches Christ).
