The schedule:

Scouring the Americas for some great films — about famed singers from Panama, queer psychedelic trips in Cuba, Chicano heroes in New Mexico, even ayahuasca chants in the Amazon — the festival has assembled a wonderfully diverse slate.

Add in the fact that they’ve curated them into separate banners like “LGBT,” “Love & Things,” “Women in Film” and “Stay Woke” alongside some great short films, and you have yourself a fest that San Fran moviegoers can’t afford to miss.

Check out all films at Roxie Theater.
