The 47th annual San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival, also known as Frameline47, has unveiled the line-up for its June 14-24 run.
The programme of nearly 90 films includes 12 world premieres, 16 North American premieres and nine US premieres, which will screen at the historic Castro Theatre and a number other venues around San Francisco and Oakland. The festival, organised by the media arts non profit Frameline, will have a virtual continuation from June 24 to August 2 for US streaming audiences.
Among the festival’s world premieres will be Jac Cron’s
Chestnut, from the US; Merle Grimme’s Clashing Differences, from Germany (in a premiere shared with FilmFest Munchen); Livia Perez’s M Is For Mothers, from Brazil; and Julian Hernandez’s The Trace of Your Lips, from Mexico. Previously announced titles set for the festival include Andrew Durham’s
Fairyland, the opening night presentation, Hannah Pearl Utt’s Cora Bora, as the Pride Kickoff film, and Jordan Danger’s God Save The Queens. Frameline’s executive director James Woolley said: “There is no better way to share an experience than watching a great movie at the cinema with friends and strangers.” Hannah Pearl Utt’s
, as the Pride Kickoff film, and Jordan Danger’s 11001010God Save The Queens
were also previously announced titles. We are proud to present Northern California’s largest film festival despite the challenges that have changed moviegoing. It speaks volumes about the strength and resilience of queer art, community and the urgent need for them.”
