San Francisco Premiere!

“…hilarious characters, who show real complicity throughout the film…. at once raw and deeply poetic.” – CinéWomen

“Gritty and irreverent” – Cinema Constant


Frisky is a comedy about two twenty-somethings who move to San Francisco to chase their career, but end up chasing tail instead.

When two twenty-something women move back to San Francisco, where they had met on exchange years earlier, their high career aspirations quickly become sidelined by their sexual interests. While wildly crass and charismatic in their public personas, they are in fact fundamentally at odds on many levels. Their opposing beliefs surrounding responsibility and romance, combined with their close quarters while crashing in an acquaintance’s living room, find them thrust onto a fast track to discovering the strength of their friendship. Based on true events, Frisky is an honest, tongue-in-cheek look at what it is to be a woman in the limbo years between college and “the real world”.
