This year’s San Francisco International Film Festival is going to be a real hoot! We have so many people seeing so many different things during the Fest, all so we can bring you as comprehensive and diverse coverage of the fest as we can without killing Alex (who is interviewing, like, 700 people over the next few weeks, bless his heart). Here’s just a sampling of what you’re going to see on the Appeal over the course of the Fest:
MiHi will be telling you about tonight’s screening of La Mission, which Alex also likes — how can you not be into a movie where Benjamin Bratt plays an ex-con bus driver (somebody get Judson True on the phone).
Alex will be telling you about 500 Days of Summer, “the latest Zooey Deschanel indie
rom-com thing” (as Rita put it to us). And I’m trying to convince Alex to go to the afterparty with me at Clift, where we hope hilarity of some sort will ensue.
Look, we could tell you what everyone’s seeing but, really, we just want you to keep on coming back to see for yourself. We’re talking film reviews in which we promise not to get all boring and film geeky, party coverage, interviews, and tons of ticket giveaways (we have four tomorrow, alone). This is going to be fun.
