SF LATINO FILM FESTIVAL SETS LOCATIONS, SEEKS COLLABORATORS

The SF Latino Film Festival is gearing up for its 8th annual September events, celebrating independent film from the Americas and Europe. Our goal is to showcase film by, about, or made with Latinos—to shine a light on inclusion. Other films are presented to expose our innovative and influential Bay Area audiences to popular foreign film as a way to celebrate cultural differences.

The festival committee invites collaborators to sponsor, host, and contribute content to our upcoming events. Venues on the confirmed schedule include the following Bay Area locations.

San Francisco Federal Credit Union Proud Sponsor of San Francisco Latino Film Fest

 

cute coupleSan Francisco Federal Credit Union is a proud sponsor of the 2015 SF Latino Film Festival. As a community partner, the Credit Union sponsors events and partners with local organizations throughout the year in an effort to give back to the communities they serve.

So far this year, San Francisco FCU has donated over $90,000 and volunteered over 780 hours to local causes in SF. The Credit Union was started on Capp Street in San Francisco in 1954, and now serves those who live, work, and go to school in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties.

The Credit Union has seven branches throughout San Francisco and San Mateo, their most recent branch opened in March 2015 in the Excelsior District as a result of the City of San Francisco recognizing a need for a reliable financial institution in the diverse and unique neighborhood.

San Francisco FCU offers the same products and services as banks, but as a not-for-profit can do so at better rates and fewer fees. As a financial institution unique to the Bay Area, the Credit Union also offers specialized products like Furry Funds, a pet saving s account, and Tenants in Common (TIC) financing. They are also the chosen financial institution for San Francisco’s city wide Youth Jobs+ Program, designed for youths in the city who may face barriers to employment to get jobs and access to financial education.

Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, or goes to school in San Francisco or San Mateo Counties, check out more information at SanFranciscoFCU.com
