San Francisco Int'l Film Festival 2009

"The longest-running film festival in the Americas"

This year's festival is shaping up to be an amazing two weeks of films and tributes. Check the festival site tomorrow (March 31) for a complete listing of screenings.

Read my post about two of the three restored prints that the S.F. Film Society will be showing this year here.

Yep, I'm still not going to be there.

Featured Events:

Founder’s Directing Award-Francis Ford Coppola (via
Thursday, April 30, TBA Friday, May 1

Update [from SF Film Society e-mail]:

"On May 1, the Festival will honor the brilliant career of one of the seminal figures in American and world cinema, director and producer Francis Ford Coppola.

This iconic director has opened an exciting new chapter in an already encyclopedic career beginning with Youth Without Youth and continuing with the highly anticipated Tetro, which opens in mid-June. Read more.

In a variation on the Festival's standard interview format, Coppola will be joined onstage by a number of his esteemed friends and collaborators, who, in a moderated discussion, will cover all manner of subjects, cinematic and otherwise. Film clips, including the new Tetro trailer, and an extended audience Q&A will round out the night.

Tickets are on sale now to valid Film Society members. Buy now or call 925-866-9559."
