Flashback Friday: A dramatic slice of SFIFF40 Life

We've been working hard over here at the Film Society to prepare for our exciting 56th SF International Film Festival and thought a flashback in time would be a good reminder for us to remember where all this hard work is going. Take a break and remember the glitz, glamor, and celebrations of SFIFF Life from 1997, because as our announcer says:

An international film festival is a dramatic slice of life.

Get ready to enjoy our 56th!

Keep your friends close...

I am now making a 3D movie in Portugal. I think there is no future whatsoever in 3D, it does nothing to the grammar and syntax or vocabulary of cinema... but I think it’s important for me to learn as much as possible about cinema and optics.
