Thank you to all the good people who came out to enjoy the Streetfilms screening last night with founder Clarence Eckerson and Bay Area filmmakers Charlotte Buchen and John Hamilton. We had a packed house and the reaction to the films was very encouraging. A big thanks to Charlotte for the new Bay Area Street Portraits, beautiful vignettes of people in the Bay Area and the bicycles that make up an important part of their lives. It was also very nice to meet Sal and Antonio, two of the stars of the Portraits. We’ll be posting those on the blog in the coming weeks.

We’d like to thank all of the volunteers who helped make the evening a success, including Miles Epstein, Myleen Hollero, Michael and Sarah Sonn, Tim Doherty, Noriko Kakue, Abby Shull and the valet bicycle parking crew from SFBC. Special thanks also to Jonathan Weiner, Terri Saul, Workspace Limited, Audio/Visual Technician Troy Vadakan, Swirl on Castro, and Orange Photography. See more photos here.

  • Great party, as always. Well done everyone.

    Question, there was a print that we were interested in but we totally flaked when we left and forgot to purchase it. Is there anyway we can still acquire it?
