News

The Frida Cinema’s staff members, volunteers, and interns all have one thing in common — we love movies! And like many folks who love movies, we love to talk about movies! Our KTFC Radio program provides resources for Frida Cinema team members to get in front of a mic, welcome special guests, and share their passion for cinema with an audience of film lovers. KFTC Radio is made possible with support from the City of Santa Ana’s Investing in the Artist Grant. Thanks, Santa Ana! All shows and episodes are available on Spotify, and listed on this page. Keep posted for new content!
