The Memorial for Founder and Director of Oddball Films and the San Francisco Media Archive, Stephen Parr is scheduled for January 7th, 2018 at the Roxie Theater (3117 16th St, San Francisco, CA 94103) from 12:30pm - 3:00pm to be followed by a reception. The program details and location of the reception will follow.
There will be film, there will be performances, there will be remembrances, there will be friends and colleagues.
We are still accepting input about the program and are interested in presenting a program Stephen would enjoy.
For those of you who are connected to Stephen from Syracuse, or who are nearby to Syracuse, there are services for Stephen planned in Syracuse with a wake at Farone's on Sunday December 10th, 3:00-5:00. Farone's is located at:
1500 Park Street, Syracuse , NY , 13208
Telephone: (315) 422-1911
The burial will be the following day at 11 am Greenlawn Cemetery in Warners, NY and the family will be leaving from the funeral home.
We would also like to share this video Stephen made for the Friends of Helen Hill program as part of the 2017 Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) Conference that took place this past week. We thought Stephen's humor and keen use of archival footage would be appreciated during this time.
More details about the memorial will follow and we thank you for your support.
