The Five Must-Do SF Intl Film Festival Dates

This week the serious film fans are freaking out, as the San Francisco International Film Festival is in full swing. It’s a great cultural event, a great city event and a great date event. We thought we’d ask Sean Uyehara, who’s part of the programming team at the Festival, which runs through May 5, to suggest a few Festival dates.

1. Japan and France

The date: How Hookup... head to Japantown and watch an incredibly funny Japanese movie with a French name, Hospitalité, eat the the best French-Japanese fusion in the world at Bushi-Tei and then make out either French or Japanese style (your pick).

Why it's great: Two awesome film cultures and two awesome food cultures.

2. Porchlight

The date: How Hookup... check out Porchlight at the film festival. It's a nonfictional storytelling series that will feature Edinburgh Castle proprietor Alan Black telling a story about being a movie extra. We can then either go to Edinburgh Castle for trivia night OR we can make our own documentary. Strictly wholesome, unless you don't want it to be, which I hope you don't.

Why it's great: Porchlight is one of the most fun events in the city.

Why it's great: It’s a rock show and a movie at the Castro Theater, which are like the three main elements to love.

4. I’m Your Man

The date: How Hookup... attend the Leonard Cohen based program of shorts that will include a documentary and local musicians Kelley Stoltz and Pale Hoarse playing live covering a few Cohen's songs.

Why it's great: Leonard Cohen is only one of the greatest songwriters of a generation.

5. Serbian Jackass

The date: How Hookup... see Tilva Rosh -- it's supposed to be the Serbian jackass, except more Serbian --, head over to the concrete slides on Seward Street>, but not until after we drink a lot, then go to Potrero Hill Skatepark and finally to the emergency room/dentist/SF General.

Why it's great: I think that’s obvious.
