As the 56th San Francisco Film Festival draws to a close, this year’s award winners have been announced gaining prestige and over $70,000 in prizes.
For 56 years and counting, the San Francisco International Film Festival has been presenting the world’s most innovative film to the Bay Area. It’s time to gear up for the newest installment beginning April 25 through May 9.
The 56th San Francisco International Film Festival may not begin until April 26 but the films in competition have been announced.
All good things need to come to a close and so does the 55th year of the San Francisco International Film Festival. After two weeks of bringing films from all around the film to the Bay Area it’s only fitting they should end with a film that expresses just that.
The city warmed up just in time for the opening night of the SF International Film Festival at Castro Theatre, ushering in another great season of film, events and an all around good time. The festival’s 55th year, dedicated to the late Executive Director Graham Leggat, opened with a screening of the exquisite French period drama Farewell, My Queen followed by a discussion with director Benoît Jacquot.
