The International Film Festival on Aging is a celebration of the unique joys, challenges and opportunities of our later years, when our experience and wisdom are finally equal to our passion for life. Through artistic expression, we showcase the singular experience of becoming a true Elder. Presented by the Pacific Institute and the AgeSong Senior Communities, this film series illustrates the value of our Elders while challenging society’s archaic preconceptions about growing older. The International Film Festival on Aging will take place from February 20–22, 2009 at premiere film venues across the San Francisco Bay Area, including at the world–famous Castro Theatre. (February 20th at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco; and February 21st & 22nd at the AMC Theatres in San Francisco and Emeryville.) Films include international, independent and studio productions, from captivating animated shorts to touching and memorable feature length films and documentaries, all of which explore the complex issues of aging.
