The San Francisco Frozen Film Festival (SF FFF) is a Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2006 that is dedicated to creating avenues for independent filmmakers, youth, filmmakers of conscience, and artists from underserved communities to come together and exhibit their work to the widest possible
The San Francisco Frozen Film Festival is held every summer in the heart of the Mission district in San Francisco at the Roxie Theatre. Filmmakers whose work is accepted into the festival are invited to come to the city by the bay in the dead of summer to screen and discuss their work.
In addition to our annual international film festival, the SFFFF Youth Program is specifically focused on demonstrating to underserved youth that existing pathways do exist to help them find a career in the film arts. SFFFF holds annual music and art performances, as well as youth programming and awards presentations.

A GAY GIRL IN DAMASCUS: THE AMINA PROFILE explores the story of Amina Arraf, a Syrian- American revolutionary whose blog “A Gay Girl in Damascus” acquires a huge following as the Syrian uprising gains momentum. Sandra Bagaria, a smart, young Montreal professional, is involved in an online affair with her when Amina is allegedly abducted by the Syrian secret police—sparking an international movement to save her from torture, rape or even death.
Playing out like a detective story, A GAY GIRL IN DAMASCUS: THE AMINA PROFILE involves American intelligence agencies, major global media outlets, and a host of activists and sympathizers. But what starts as a love story becomes a tale of deceit and betrayal enabled by the global Internet and viral social media.
Directed by Sophie Deraspe. 84 minutes. English, French, and Arabic with English subtitles.
