Opening Night

Frameline32 opens in style with a delicious period piece. Affinity, based on Sarah Waters’ 1999 novel of the same name, is a women-in-prison movie with a gothic Victorian twist. Mourning her father’s death and looking for diversion, upper-class Margaret goes to Milbank Prison as a “Lady Visitor.” When she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Selina (Zoe Tapper), an attractive young convict, Margaret’s do-gooding quickly falls by the wayside. Stylishly shot, Affinity features stellar performances from Anna Massey, Amanda Plummer and particularly Anna Madely as the frustrated young Margaret.

Following the screening of Affinity, join us for our Opening Night Gala at the ultra-hip and newly remodeled nightclub Ten15 Folsom (1015 Folsom Street, between 5th and 6th Streets). Amid the multiple dance floors and plush VIP lounges, enjoy a sumptuous selection of culinary delights, fabulous wines, specialty cocktails and decadent desserts from our Gala Partners. Get up, get funky and enjoy our VIP nightclub experience in the company of friends and fellow Frameline supporters. You won’t want to miss this dazzling Festival launch and the unofficial kick-off to San Francisco’s Pride week.
