Fags! Bums! Independent Film! — SFSU Human Rights International Film Fest

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I can’t keep up with the International Film Fest this year. There are so many great films that deserve my money, but I probably only have enough money to spare on one.

I was pretty sad until I actually found out that my friend is throwing his own Human Rights Film Fest at the Red Vic. My friend Morgan has been through a lot of phases over the last four years but I think he’s finally done something cool. That, and getting a new show on Pirate Cat Radio.

The films are all from kids at SF State and they’re all extremely interesting. They’ve got everything from the meaning of the word “fag” to high schoolers to bum’s making their own paradise. This best thing about this little event? ITS FREE.

I’ll be out supporting my friend and independent film. And the best part is that I won’t have to eat ramen for the next month to do it.


What: SF State Human Rights Film Festival

Where: Red Vic

When: Saturday May 2nd, 2-6 p.m.

Why: Because you’re too broke but you still wanna sneak a tall can into the movies and support independent film.

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
