The Artists Television Access center in San Francisco is hosting their 2nd annual blowout festival next month, Oct. 10-12, showcasing 26 short works by a variety of underground and independent filmmakers. There will be a film shown on the 10th (listed below), but that night is mostly a party night with music by dj_spaceinvader & Niles of mk2 reality enhancement.
