SFF named in 'Top 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World'
MovieMaker Magazine named SFF one of the Top 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World. Here's what they had to say about us:
"One of a couple "regional" exemplars on our list, SFF pairs a sharp selection of new indies with throwbacks to classic Hollywood, like this spring's guests Olympia Dukakis and Sophia Loren (and if it's cool enough for Sophia, it's cool enough for us). Programs also feature partnerships with non-profit Through Women's Eyes, wihch presents female-driven films at SFF, as well as the LGBT-centered Harvey Milk Festival. Overall, SFF is "extremely accomodating," says a panelist, who fondly remembers "a massive luncheon focusing on women filmmakers - we shared our experiences with one another and talked about our 'secrets.'"
