The weekend is upon us again people, and the San Francisco International Film Festival is about to fill up a majority of it! That isn't to say that there aren't also some great regularly scheduled screenings going on in the bay area too. In fact, today is the official release date for the highly anticipated Green Room, which I'm personally extremely excited for. Let's see what our weekend looks like.
