Graham Leggat (1960-2011)

Graham Leggat, who only last month stepped down as executive director of the San Francisco Film Society, passed away yesterday, August 25th, 2011, after an 18 month battle with cancer. He was a conspicuous & even feisty presence at the SF International Film Festival earlier this year. I've enjoyed the extended programming he brought to the Film Society in his 6 year tenure & am looking forward to the year-round screenings at New People Cinema.
