San Francisco FilmHouse

Four new filmmakers are getting some much-needed free production office space via the San Francisco Film Society. FilmHouse Residencies, part of the Film Society's Filmmaker360 program, which is backed by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, start in February 2014. This innovative program helps narrative features such as "Fruitvale Station" to get made by giving office space for six- or twelve-month residencies to independent filmmakers who are already engaged in film production. 

These four filmmakers join three other teams already in residence. FilmHouse residents also benefit from a series of lectures and presentations from industry pros as well as resident-led workshops and work-in-progress screenings and access to SFFS networking events; and numerous other community-building programs and events. 

The panelists who reviewed submissions were Kenneth Rainin Foundation board member Rivkah Beth Medow; filmmaker Marc Smolowitz; SFFS Corporate Development Manager Amanda Todd; Director of Filmmaker360 Michele Turnure-Salleo; and Trinity West, FilmHouse Coordinator. 

The next application period opens in spring 2014 for the next term of FilmHouse Residencies beginning in in the fall. More info here. 

The four projects are listed below:
