July 27, 6pm: Movie & Meetup In the Castro!


The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (SFJFF) Brings the West Coast Premier of the Important New Documentary, Intent to Destroy. Join us at SF’s historic Castro Theatre to watch this new documentary followed by a meetup at nearby Blush Wine Bar.
ABOUT THE FILM: Academy Award nominated director Joe Berlinger embeds himself on the epic film set of Terry George’s The Promise (starring Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Charlotte Le Bon, and with Angela Sarafyan), to take an unwavering look at the Armenian Genocide. Historians, scholars, and high-profile filmmakers come together in Berlinger’s cinematic exploration of the tangled web of responsibility that has driven a century of denial by the Turkish government and its strategic allies. SFJFF is honored to present this year’s Freedom of Expression Award to the film’s director Joe Berlinger, who will appear in person to accept the award, followed by an onstage interview. JOIN US AT Blush! wine bar AFTER THE FILM In case you cannot make the film premier, join us for a special meetup at nearby Blush Wine Bar after the movie!
