Dear film lovers:

We are gearing up for the 8th Annual Legacy Film Festival on Aging, to be presented September 14 – 16, 2018, once again at the lovely New People Cinema, 1746 Post St, Japantown, San Francisco

Our board of directors, film festival researchers and screening panel are contacting filmmakers and reviewing current film submissions from all over the world, to bring you films that embrace our mission to educate, entertain, and inspire intergenerational audiences about the issues of aging.

If you have come to the festival in any of the past 7 years, you have experienced the diversity of films portraying the fullness and depth of later life. You may have been part of the audience who participated in a post-film Q&A.

As one viewer, JT, wrote: “The films in the Festival have always inspired me, moved me, cheered me, made me cheer for the people in the films and made me glad to be who I am.”

This year, we wish to broaden our scope to provide greater opportunities for low-income neighbors and students to attend the festival. You can help us to reach out with your donation.


Thank you: donors, volunteers, filmmakers, and sponsors.

Sheila Malkind, Executive Director

Board of Directors: Zel Anders, Howard Bloomberg, Amy Hittner, Paul Kleyman, Arlene Reiff, Jessica Rucker.
