Program Overview

A home for media arts for over a decade, Ninth Street Independent Film Center makes work spaces and shared resources available to individual filmmakers through the Media Arts Incubator Program.  The Incubator Program offers access to a dedicated work space, knowledge sharing, outreach opportunities, networking events, and meeting and exhibition space on an annual basis. Our goal is to provide spaces to Bay Area Filmmakers to complete their project(s). 

With support from the San Francisco Film Commission, Ninth Street is able to offer dedicated offices at a subsidized rates.  We currently have a total of 7 offices available at this reduced rate.  These offices have a 1 year lease with the option to renew. 


Along with dedicated office space, filmmakers will have access to: 

  • Shared Kitchen (stocked teas, coffee and filtered water)

  • Recently upgraded  and remodeled screening room (4K Projector with Wireless HDMI, Surround Sound, Live streaming, PA system)

  • Invites to all Ninth Street IFC Events

  • Free tickets to festival screenings

  • Check in lunches and SF Film meetings

  • Participation in our Advanced Film Makers Group mixers

  • Participation in organizing event relevant to residents needs and interests

All filmmakers are encouraged to apply. Due to limited space we ask that everyone complete a short application to verify eligibility. Priority will be given to filmmakers that conduct the majority of their work in San Francisco. 

The program is currently at capacity. Please sign up for our wait list and you will be contacted when a space becomes available.
