Announcing the 2012 German Gems Film Festival

San Francisco kicks off the 2012 film festival season with the German Gems annual showcase of hard to find German films.  If you haven’t attended this festival in previous years I strongly urge you to do so this time around, because Unfortunately, the third annual German Gems will also be its last.    As can be expected, we at will have spoiler-free reviews on all the films leading up to the festival.

All of the San Francisco screenings will take place at The Castro Theatre on Saturday, January 14th.  From there, the festival moves down the Mendocino coast to the Arena Theater in Point Arena.  Follow the jump for the full schedule and ticket information
