The 9th Annual Legacy Film Festival on Aging celebrated the aging process as profound and meaningful, often challenging, and always courageous. Will we ‘age gracefully’, or crankily, or painfully? Or defiantly? Our films portrayed some of the many facets of this unique, ever-changing experience honestly and artfully and always with compassion and love for their subjects.

Thank you for being there.

Meet Executive Director Sheila Malkind
Sheila Malkind, LFFoA executive directorAfter 40 years in the field of aging, first in Chicago, and now in San Francisco, Sheila Malkind is passionate about presenting films on aging to the SF community. She sees her work as her passion, based on her experiences working and socializing with older people. Sheila hopes to transform the images of adults that are currently represented in the media into more realistic and dynamic images of people with experience who wish to learn new concepts, and who have much to contribute to society, through work, volunteerism, socializing, and just simple enjoyment in life.
