Cinema By The Bay Presented by San Francisco Film Society November 22 – 24

San Francisco Film Society’s 2013 Fall Season is coming to an end by keeping it local. From November 22 – 24 they will be presenting Cinema By The Bay at The Roxie Theater in the Mission, a fitting venue of local stature.. After scoping out the best of contemporary international cinema for local consumption — Hong Kong Cinema, Taiwan Film Days, French Cinema Now, and New Italian Cinema — SFFS is ready to show Bay Area film fans what’s happening in their own backyard. Screenings include the newest from established local filmmakers like Mitchell Alteri — one-half of Butcher Brothers — as well as up and comers, including a selection of San Francisco State University alumni shorts billed as The SF State of Cinema.

Sunday’s Essential SF also continues the tradition of honoring the most essential and influential San Francisco filmmakers and institutions. SFFS’ 2013 Fall Season is determined to go out with a bang. Advance tickets and more information on each film are available on the San Francisco Film Society’s official website.
