Delancey Street Screening Room, 600 Embarcadero Street, San Francisco

The Eleventh Annual San Francisco Greek Film Festival will open on Saturday, May 3rd and will run through Saturday, May 10th, 2014, at the Delancey Street Screening Room, 600 Embarcadero Street, in San Francisco.

The SFGFF will showcase contemporary Greek feature films and shorts from established and up-an-coming directors from Greece or of Greek decent. Feature length films and shorts will be showcased each night, and all movies will have English subtitles. Comedy, drama, and documentaries are all part of the 2014 mix. We are thrilled to have several award winning films showing during the week of the festival. Two film producers will also be present during the festival to share their perspectives and highlight the event.

Additionally, for the third year, we will be presenting a People’s Choice Award at the end of the week to the director whose film gets the most votes by our attendees. Awards will be given in both the short and feature film categories. An opening night reception and closing night reception will take place immediately following the first and last night’s films respectively, complete with authentic Greek appetizers, drinks and music at the Delancey Street Screening Room.

Tickets and weeklong passes, as well as a full description of all the films, and times, will be available online at www.grfilm.com. Subject to availability, tickets will be available at the door, and discounts are available for students with a valid student ID.
