Mostly British Film Festival in San Francisco

February 9 to 16, 2023

In total, 25 new and classic movies are scheduled from the UK, Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa to be included in the annual tribute to English language foreign films which opens with the Northern California premiere of “EMILY”, a romanticized and sensual perspective on the life of Wuthering Heights author Emily Bronte. Opening night features actress-turned-director Frances O’Connor on Zoom discussing her rapturously-reviewed debut film.

San Francisco Chronicle film critic Mick LaSalle named “EMILY” first in his list of “Movies to Look Out for in 2023.” On February 11, the festival pays tribute to “THE THORN BIRDS” on its 40th anniversary by showing extensive excerpts from the film’s scenes. The Australian TV saga about a forbidden love between a Roman Catholic priest and an heiress to a sheep farm in the 1920s outback remains the second-highest rated miniseries in television history exceeded only by ROOTS. Series stars Richard Chamberlain, Rachel Ward and Bryan Brown gathered with Mostly British co-director Ruthe Stein on Zoom to talk about the making of this show, programming as riveting today as it was in 1983.

A series of documentaries every day highlight the strong submissions in this category. Subject matter ranges from bios of swinging ’60s fashion designer Mary Quant and Pulitzer prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon to an insider’s look at the Beatles’ famous studio Abbey Road directed by Paul McCartney’s daughter Mary.

Information

Tickets are available by visiting mostlybritish.org

Opening night tickets including the reception beforehand are $40/$30.

Closing night tickets  including the after party is $30/$20.
