Countryfest Community Cinema is a community owned, non-profit business that was built by people in the Dauphin and Parkland area. The community fully supported the project with over $1 million raised by community residents, organizations and business. The business model for Countryfest Community Cinema is to put profits back into other community projects so all donations will continue to help kick-start other initiatives in the community.

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.


A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them.
