Thursday, February 9 | SF IndieFest – Two weeks of “the best in independent, alternative, and subversive cinema from around the globe.” Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from the organizers:

Here’s a brief example of the extreme excellent-ness of this year’s program: we’re showing THE FP, no doubt the best post-apocalyptic dance-fight video game movie you’ve ever seen; CLOWN, the most sick and wrong (and hilarious) Danish buddy film you’ve ever seen; BULLHEAD, Belgium’s Oscar candidate for this year and probably your first introduction to Euro-backwoods crime culture.  We’re showing EXLEY, the latest underground masterpiece by Canuxploitation pioneer Larry Kent. And a sweet local comedy called JUKO”S TIME MACHINE, just in time for Valentines Day.  Though, if you prefer to spend Valentines Day yelling your lungs out to classic anti-love Power Ballads, put LOVE BITES on your calendar.

Great film, fantastic parties and a roller disco? Sign us up!

Friday, February 10 | Black Choreographers Festival: Here & Now – Non-profit Art Organizations AAAPAC and K*Star*Productions have joined forces to present a comprehensive festival celebrating the diverse artistic expression within the context of African and African American dance and culture.

Thursday, February 2 | CABARET by Kander and Ebb – A divinely decadent experience! Independent Cabaret Productions and Shakespeare at Stinson present this startling rendition of Tony-award-winning musical Cabaret, directed by Hector Correa. In the Young Performers Theatre at Fort Mason, the production will use an intimate space much like what Christopher Isherwood, author of the memoir upon which Cabaret was based, saw in pre-World-War-II Berlin. The audience won’t just be watching a show; they’ll be experiencing the dark, decadent world of Weimar Germany, a strange locale on the border of drama and burlesque, a place on the edge of civilization and of humanity itself. Our old friends Sally, Cliff, and the Emcee will all be there. Hopefully you will be too!

Friday, January 27 | Falsettoland – Fledgling Asian-American theatre company STIRFRY THEATRE is proud to present, as its San Francisco debut, a staged concert version of William Finn’s & James Lapine’s masterpiece, FALSETTOLAND, exploring the universal themes of love, loss, and family. This poignant and rarely performed one-act, about a family facing the specter of AIDS in the the early ’80s, was called “an achingly articulate musical” by The New York Times and a “burst of genius” by Time Magazine.
