The MUFF Society

A feminist community that celebrates women in film/TV.

The MUFF Society is a feminist screening series and community based in Toronto that aims to champion women in film both on and off screen. We do this through a variety of initiatives, including a short film program (miniMUFF), conversation series (Reel Girl Talk), documentary series (HER-Story), and blog.

MUFF SF x Desperately Seeking Susan

  • Alamo Drafthouse New Mission 2550 Mission Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Annnd we’re back!! MUFFxSF returns this month with Susan Seidelman’s classic Desperately Seeking Susan, the story of lost identity in the pre-Internet world. Rosanna Arquette plays Roberta, a restless housewife, daydreaming of a couple, Susan (Madonna) and Jim, who communicate through personal ads. Fantasy becomes reality when their lives intersect in a mish-mash of directions.

In true 80's form, there's murder, mystery, fashion and big hair, and not in the least, there's Madonna as the cool girl we all want to be.

Also, amateur magicians are welcome to perform any known tricks involving doves.

Join us at our newest screening venue, Alamo Drafthouse New Mission! (Note: time still to be confirmed.) 

Later Event: July 13
