Dear film lovers:

The 8th Annual Legacy Film Festival on Aging, will be presented September 14 – 16, 2018, once again at the lovely New People Cinema, 1746 Post St, Japantown, San Francisco

We are pleased to bring you films that embrace our mission to educate, entertain, and inspire intergenerational audiences about the issues of aging. This year we have three days of films from around the world (Sardinia, Bulgaria, Colombia, Mexico, Czech Republic) and the USA, showcasing the fullness of growing older—a process both profound, and challenging. Shorts, docs, and narratives presented in 7 separate programs; intergenerational themes, end of life, caregiving, 100-year-olds; friendships; etc.

If you have come to the festival in any of the past 7 years, you have experienced the diversity of films and 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.
