Ruthe Stein, co-director and main programmer of the Mostly British Film Festival, most definitely knows British films — and she also knows San Francisco. That's why, Stein, along with a 10-person board, saw to it that in it's sixth year MBFF brought the City the goods with a power-packed line-up. The eight-day program is a showcasing of 25 films from the U.K., Ireland, Australia and South Africa, February 13-20 at San Francisco's historic Vogue Theater.
Like any year, Stein attended the Toronto International Film Festival to scope out the scene. In addition, Stein tells SF Weekly that she keeps a close watch on films showing at the London Film Festival as well as festivals in Edinburgh, Dublin, Sydney and Melbourne before deciding on a final line-up for MBFF.
