SF-set comedy ‘Frisky’ gets local Roxie premiere

Describing their project as “a truly underdog film created by a group of Bay Area local independent filmmakers with no budget,” the folks behind “Frisky” are excited for the San Francisco premiere of the movie.

“‘Frisky’ was shot entirely in San Francisco, with an all-female crew, packed to the brim with S.F. favorites, and provides a hilarious female perspective of living in The City,” says Brandon Wardle, who co-stars.

He’ll be among the participants at the red carpet screening at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Roxie, which includes a Q&A with the cast and crew.

Directed and produced by Claudia Pickering (who also stars, along with Monica Ammerman), the comedy is about two twenty-something women who move to San Francisco to chase their careers, but, as the publicity material notes, “end up chasing tail.”

On the circuit abroad and in the U.S., “Frisky” won best feature at the Broad Humor Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Austin Revolution Film Festival and was praised for its “hilarious characters, who show real complicity throughout the film” by CinéWomen.

It’s slated to be released in theaters by Gravitas in 2017.
