SF Sketchfest is thrilled to pay tribute to the iconic Sally Field with a screening of her new film "Hello, My Name is Doris" and Q&A with Sally and "Doris" director and co-screenwriter Michael Showalter.

"Hello, My Name is Doris"
After a lifetime of being overlooked and ignored, a woman of a certain age finds her world turned upside down by a handsome new co-worker and a self-help seminar that inspires her to take a chance on love in "Hello, My Name is Doris," a witty and compassionate late-life coming-of-age-story.

When Doris Miller (Sally Field) meets John Fremont (Max Greenfield), her company's hip new art director, sparks fly-at least for Doris. Her first encounter with true romance (outside of the pages of a novel) convinces Doris that she and the mostly unaware John are meant for each other. In the cluttered house she shared with her late mother, Doris mines the Internet for information on her one-and-only, guided by the 13-year-old granddaughter of her best pal Roz (Tyne Daly).

When Doris begins showing up at John's regular haunts, she wins over his Williamsburg friends with her eclectic vintage wardrobe, quirky naiveté and unironic enthusiasm for their rooftop knitting circle. Her new life brings Doris a thrilling perspective, but also creates a rift between her and her longtime friends and family, who believe she's making a fool of herself over a guy half her age. Eager for all the experiences she has missed out on, Doris throws caution to the wind and follows her heart for the very first time.

Hello, Name is Doris stars two-time Academy Award®-winner Sally Field ("Norma Rae," "Places in the Heart"), Max Greenfield ("New Girl," "They Came Together"), Beth Behrs ("2 Broke Girls," "American Pie Presents: The Book of Love"), Wendi McLendon-Covey ("Bridesmaids," "The Goldbergs"), Stephen Root ("Selma," "Fargo"), Elizabeth Reaser ("The Twilight Saga," "Mad Men"), Natasha Lyonne ("Orange Is the New Black, "American Pie"), Tyne Daly ("Cagney and Lacey," "Judging Amy"), Peter Gallagher ("American Beauty," "Covert Affairs") and Isabella Acres ("Sofia the First," "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs").

Based on a short film by Laura Terruso, "Hello, My Name is Doris" was written by Terruso and Michael Showalter and directed by Showalter. $35,
