For Fans of Film
If you love film, mark your calendar for the upcoming San Francisco International Film Festival. Hands down, it's your best chance to catch next year's Oscar winners earlier than anyone else or see a rare art house feature you might otherwise miss. This year there's an early screening of the highly anticipated new documentary about Steve Jobs from Alex Gibney. Also on tap? An exploration of the delightfully bad Cannon exploitation films from the '80s, a new biopic of David Foster Wallace, and a grouchy, elderly Sherlock Holmes played by Ian McKellan. For film aficionados, this top San Francisco event is not-to-be-missed. Myriad options in all styles of cinema will be on offer from April 23 through May 10 at various theaters around San Francisco. Afterwards, it's just a short hop back to your San Francisco area hotel.
