THE MOSTLY BRITISH FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS
FEBRUARY 16-23, 2017  TO THE
HISTORIC VOGUE THEATER IN SAN FRANCISCO

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. The Mostly British Film Festival heads into its 9th year with 26 new and classic feature films and documentaries from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa. More than half of them, including opening and closing night features, are San Francisco premieres.

Their Finest Hour and A HalfDirected by Lone SherfigMostly British opens on February 16 with “Their Finest,” the latest from “An Education” director Lone Scherfig. With a cast headed by Bill Nighy – who will attend the festival — and Gemma Arterton, this delightful romantic comedy tells the story of the British film industry during World War II, charged with buoying the spirits of people living in constant fear of the Blitz. The Australian family drama “The Daughter” closes the festival on February 23. Geoffrey Rush, Sam Neill and Miranda Otto star in this story of a grown man who returns home for his father’s wedding and complicates the proceedings.

A special series on February 18, The Beatles on Film, commemorates the Fab Four’s final concert at Candlestick Park a half century ago.    Read More...
