The 2010 San Francisco International Film Festival starts April 22, and the line-up includes the usual daunting amount of films -- fifteen days worth! Here are a few titles/events that stood out to us, and check out SF Appeal for a more in-depth round-up.
You got your Big Nights, which include Opening (micmacs), Centerpiece (happy thankyou more please), and Closing night (Joan Rivers, A Piece of Work) films, as well as awards. This year's big winner is Robert Duvall.
Also of note are Ang Lee's director's cut of Ride with the Devil, Get Low, starring Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, and Sissy Spacek, All About Evil, by SF's own Joshua Grannell (aka Peaches Christ), and documentary Utopia in Four Movements.
And here are some fun events that are sure to sell out quickly. A Drunken Evening with Derek Waters, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea scored live by Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields, and Porchlight: True Stories from the Frontiers of International Filmmaking.
