 Afternoon Delight
Dir: Jill Soloway
Narrative Feature
USA, 2012

 Produced by SFFS Board Member Jen Chaiken!

Now playing at Sundance Kabuki Cinemas and Albany Twin.

Director Jill Soloway gets the most out of her actors, fleshing out their characters and letting us know what makes them tick. It’s refreshing to hear dialogue that’s natural and modern and doesn’t try to pontificate. And the rewards are many.
— Leba Hertz, SF Chronicle

Good Ol' Freda 
Dir: Ryan White
Documentary Feature
England, 2012

Now playing at Roxie Theater and Rafael Film Center

Her anecdotes are priceless, but Freda’s reticence, although noble, to give out the real dirt - on the breakup and the influence of the women on the Beatles’ lives - and a shortage of revelations from her own life leave us wanting a little bit more.
— Leba Hertz, SF Chronicle

Populaire 
Dir: Régis Roinsard
Narrative Feature
France, 2012

SFIFF56 Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature !

Now playing at Opera Plaza Cinema, Shattuck Cinemas, and Rafael Film Center.

[Actress Déborah François] is outstanding as the gamine, keeping just this side of parody.
— Walter Addiego, SF Chronicle
