Festival Watch: Four SFFS-Supported Films at Frameline37

There's a sweet shine to our Pride Month, four SFFS-supported films will screen at Frameline37, the world’s oldest and largest LGBTQ international film festival, June 20 - 30!  We've seen and experienced these incredibly moving stories - from the political and emotional turns of the No on 8 Campaign to the impact on awakening to HIV testing - and feel the best way to congratulate a film well made is to toast the filmmaker at its Bay Area premiere.  Cheers to you all and we'll see you next on screen!
