I’m very happy to announce that “Swing” will be world-premiering at Frameline34, the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival. Two years ago, “Four Dishes” premiered at the festival too. It was a wonderful experience and film festival. Two years later, I hope the festival is still as great. This time around, the film will be screened in the incredible Castro Theater. Previously, I was in the nice, but smaller Victoria Theater. Since I’m already in Los Angeles, I will be flying up to San Francisco this weekend to attend the screening. Here are the screening details:

If you’re in the Bay area, let me know!
I have been really busy working on a short documentary for school, thus making this announcement a little late as the festival has just concluded. “Four Dishes” just played at the 28th Fajr International Film Festival. I was most surprised that they picked the film for it was certainly unexpected. The film was supposed to be in competition but because I did not manage to get MDA support to make a 35mm print, it is now placed in the “Festival of Festivals” programme. Oh well. Due to the documentary, travel advisories and how things turned out, I did not attend the festival either. It would have been interesting to know what the Iranian audience thinks of “Four Dishes”.
