The San Francisco International Film Fest is touching down this this Thursday (through May 3), and it’s chock-full of cinematic goodies. So, you can say no without hesitation when someone tries to invite you to tag along to see Titanic in 3-D.
This must-hit event has an impressive arsenal of flicks from the fashion-centric movie Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel about editrix Diana Vreeland (sneak peek above!) to Bernie, which explores the life of an Evangelist-turned-funeral director. We could go on all day — there are so many exciting options to highlight. Check out our roundup of our fave four films, and make plans accordingly.
