10HTE: Jesse Hawthorne Ficks

The San Francisco Bay Area is still home to a rich cinephilic culture nurtured in large part by a diverse array of cinemas, programmers and moviegoers. I'm honored to present a selection of favorite screenings experienced by local cinephiles in 2016. An index of participants can be found here

Six-time IOHTE contributor Jesse Hawthorne Ficks teaches Film History at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and curates/hosts the Midnites for Maniacs series in the Bay Area. He is a member of the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, writing film festival reviews for 48hills.
