SF Film Society announces its newest Artist in Residence and it happens to be one of our filmmakers.  How LOVELY…

After what seems to be the longest drum-roll ever, we’re pleased to announce that Indian director (and GFI grantee) Ashim Ahluwalia will be visiting the Bay Area next month as part of the San Francisco Film Society’s Artist in Residence program, February 23rd-March 9th!

The residency will feature the Bay Area premiere of MISS LOVELY–Ashim’s second feature, post Cannes, currently in Rotterdam, big stuff—on Thursday, January 28th (co-presented by GFI–tickets here), and a post-screening discussion moderated by Ivan Jaigirdar (of 3rdi).   Also included in the residency will be visits to schools and universities, and in-classroom screenings of Ashim’s first film, JOHN & JANE (students only).

In honor of Ashim’s visit, GFI will of course host one of its legendary happy hours on Tuesday, February 26th at Churchill.  All are invited to attend and meet the filmmaker (and sip on a few drinks and enjoy our amazing company).   Additional events may be scheduled, so please stay tuned.

This residency, for all of our local fans, should be no surprise.  GFI and the SF Film Society are good friends and over the last few years, we’ve partnered on various events, including similar residencies with other GFI filmmakers, such as Federico Veiroj (Uruguay) and Oday Rasheed (Iraq)—and of course, happy hour.

It’s something to look forward to, and we hope to see you all there.  For more information, please visit the SFFS website and if your school or organization would like to arrange a visit with Ashim, please email us at
