Mostly British Film Festival

3290 Sacramento Street
San Francisco, CA 94115


The Mostly British Film Festival was created by Ruthe Stein and Jack Bair eight years ago to bring to Bay Area audiences the best in cinema from the UK, Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa. For many of our films this is the only opportunity to see them in a theater. We have shown local premieres of such films as "56 Up," "Hunger," "Red Riding Trilogy," "Lunchbox" and "London River." The directors represented at the festival include John Boorman, Ken Loach and Mike Leigh and the actors are Colin Firth, Ewan McGregor, Cate Blanchett, Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling, to name just some. The festival is especially proud to have shown early films from Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleason and Felicity Jones before they became well known. Our guests of honor have been Malcolm McDowell, Minnie Driver, Michael York and Joel Edgerton. Rebecca Hall will be honored at the 2016 festival.
