While in a smaller house at the Rafael, this screening was in Rush status by Opening Night.

Thanks to MVFF Programming Assistant Veronica Bretzer for hosting the Q&A as well as Chihiro and Amy, also thanked in the credits for their reviews of early cuts, for making the trip up.

We weren’t expecting it, but our short had the honor of concluding the program!  Greg and I tried to pick up where each other left off.

Thanks to Meri, Nicole, Misa, and Jeff for making the trip up, especially Jeff with his tripod for these Q&A photos:

Greg and I had a great time at the Opening Night Gala.  After riding up from SF, we refueled with drink and snacks.  We didn’t attend to dress alike, but a fellow filmmaker said we looked like Mormons.

When one block of San Francisco is transformed into a pedestrian plaza in 72 hours, the city’s first-ever trial street closure gives birth to an urban oasis.

BFF and fellow transit nerd Greg and I went up to see how the plaza was doing on its first Friday night.  While getting food, we saw Cameron pedaling on a trainer in front of Diesel and the Harvey Milk Plaza raising funds for his AIDS Lifecycle 8 ride.  We suggested he come over to the plaza, and he not only brought some life to the plaza but also got some nice donations from moviegoers and other passers-by.

As Tom said, the urbanist gaggle in the plaza collected more transportation and urban planning geeks as the night went on.

After Sunday Streets, Kate called Orphan Andy’s to ask about the status of the 17th Street Plaza. Greg and I had gone the previous day and only seen the signs but no change in street configuration. Michael at Orphan Andy’s told us there was yellow paint, so we headed west to check it out.


It was very yellow indeed! We parked our bikes against the police barricades and ended up explaining the plaza and the project’s motivation to many puzzled passers by, including police. We sat down in a hippie circle to critique the yellow color, enjoy the sun, and get a head start on the reclamation of public space. We passed the camera around, so thanks to the other transit nerds for some of the shots.
