The late arts impresario Ave Montague founded San Francisco Black Film Festival twenty-one years ago. And now her son, Kali O'Ray and his wife, Katera Crossley, are leading The San Francisco Black Film Festival. It's a family affair. The San Francisco Black Film Festival represents a rare entity as its one of the few legacy organizations passed down from one generation to another. Much like generational businesses, Fred Jordan's Bar and Grill in the Bay view or Two Jacks Nik's Place Restaurant in the Lower Haight, the San Francisco has brought many good times to San Franciscans and visitors over the years.
