Hip Fest Film Kicks Off SDFF

The widely popular, and acclaimed new indie feature, Short Term 12 has been selected to kick off the SDFF during our opening session. The opening session starts at 7 pm, Friday, Sept. 27. Short Term 12 is told through the eyes of Grace, a twenty-something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. Passionate and tough, Grace is a formidable caretaker of the kids in her charge – and in love with her long-term boyfriend and co-worker, Mason. But Grace’s own difficult past – and the surprising future that suddenly presents itself – throw her into unforeseen confusion, made all the sharper with the arrival of a new intake at the facility: a gifted but troubled teenage girl with whom Grace has a charged connection. While the subject matter is complex and often dark, this lovingly realized film finds truth – and humor – in unexpected places. Awards so far for this film include SXSW Grand Jury Award (2012) and Audience Award (2013). Watch the trailer here.
