Coming Soon To The Roxie: San Francisco United Film Festival

Okay, shame on me.  I have never attended the San Francisco United Film Festival before, but all that is definitely going to change this year.  This year, enticing me to the festival is an encore showing of two classic Clint Eastwood San Francisco films, a midnight showing of Harold and Maude (still haven’t seen it yet) and a slew of interesting documentaries.  Here’s the official statement from unitedfest.comScreening cutting-edge, independent films & highly acclaimed classic movies with the audience in mind, this year’s lineup is full of amazing San Francisco premieres as well as midnight movies and classics which pay homage to this great city.”  Full line-up and ticket info can be found after the jump
