Free to Stream: Dozens of Rare Agnès Varda Shorts

Doc Alliance Films launched a new project The Greats of World Documentary Film with a retrospective of 17 documentary films by Agnès Varda.  Varda is no stranger to SFFS, having five films in SFIFF throughout the years.  These shorts are FREE to stream until February 17!  We agree with our source tipper, Director of Finance Keith Cowling, this is "pretty cool."

RIP (Rest in Professionalism): SFFS Boy Wonder, Jay Wertzler

Five years of sparkling youth, karoke raps, and remarkable flashpants wisdom - damn how we will miss our Jaybird (aka Jay Wertzler)!  Flying away from the SFFS nest, but first making a detour to pick up Pootie Tang at the airport for next week's SF Sketchfest.  We appreciate all of you and know that your mark on us is for life.   Big up and warm those vocals for the next SFIFF talent show - sa da tay!
