The non-profit Mission Housing Development Corporation, which owns and manages some 1,600 below-market-rate units city-wide and will build two affordable housing complexes in the Mission, is screening a film next week featuring some of its residential and commercial tenants.
Next Thursday, December 8, at the Mission Cultural Center, the non-profit will show a student-made documentary called “3,000 stories” that features interviews with tenants, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers from the cinema department at City College.
From their summary:
First, you will view a documentary film called “3000 Stories,” where Mission Housing residents introduce themselves, and relate how they are stabilized by affordable housing, and supported by our Resident Services team.
The second film, “Storefronts: Doing Business in the Mission,” introduces us to some Mission Housing commercial tenants — for profits and nonprofits — and we learn how they are able to survive and thrive in spite of today’s red-hot market for renting business space.
The film screening will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers, and people who appear in the films.
The event, from 6:00 to 8 p.m., is free and those interested can RSVP online.
