Two Weeks in the Hall Of Mirrors 

The 58th San Francisco International Film Festival, showing at twelve venues in San Francisco and the East Bay, is especially feisty and strong this year.

The festival opens Thursday, April 23 (7 p.m.) at the Castro Theatre with a slightly dubious attempt to ride the wave of the high-tech marketplace. Alex Gibney's documentary Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine is neither the first nor the last movie to capitalize on the late Apple godhead's popularity. Whether Gibney's profile of Jobs manages to capture the spirit of the times will be dealt with later, at the box office and in reviews, but this week the SFIFF has it all to itself for one night. Whoopee. The San Francisco International Film Festival runs April 23–May 7 at twelve different venues in San Francisco and the East Bay. Programs, non-film events, venues, and personal appearance dates are subject to change. The best way to keep up with the latest festival news is in your pocket, via social networks, the Film Society's blog (Blog.SFFS.org), or at the mother ship, SFFS.ORG/SFIFF58.
