SFIFF 2007

I’ve resigned myself to a life in the suburbs, but the older I get, the more frequently I’m overcome by a traveling Jones. So when Michael graciously offered me a place to stay, I jumped at the chance to spend a week roaming the hills of San Francisco and watching some great films. This will be my second trip to SFIFF, and I’m really excited about my lineup. I’ll get a second shot at a few TIFF favorites (Colossal Youth and Private Fears in Public Places), I’ll get to see a couple that I missed the first time around (Daratt, Opera Jawa, and The Island), and, of course, there will be several new discoveries. I’m especially excited about Forever, the latest from Heddy Honigmann, who will be in town to receive the Golden Gate Persistence of Vision Award.
