San Francisco Silent Film Festival 2013

San Francisco Silent FIlm Festival

Ah, it seems like only yesterday that I was volunteering at the mini silent film festival and starting my new job. The official SF Silent Film Festival felt forever from now.

Well, time flies. It’s been about five months, and it’s time for the festival! Thankfully my job is going well, so I’m excited to spend a bit extra on getting out into the SF arts scene. Opera, movies, theater… I’m blowing it all on inspiration.

The Silent Film Fest runs this Thursday-Sunday, and a full pass is 220$. Tempting, but still too much for me. If I’d volunteered, I would have gotten free access to the shows, but I forgot to sign up. I think I’ll probably see one or two during the weekend, at 15-20 bucks a pop.

Here are my picks from the lineup.
