How do we begin? Opening Night kicks off the festival with a showcase of some of SF's luminaries and most incredible creators, including author Anne Lamott with Anna Sale of Death, Sex & Money.

For one special evening, join us as we take the taboo topic of death out of the shadows and confront it in brand new, inviting ways—through art, music, and conversation. By reimagining death, let’s reimagine life.
