SFIFF: An Evening With Richard Linklater & Screening: Boyhood

It's a little bit further out, but make sure to get your tickets NOW for this awesome event!!

Richard Linklater, the director of the amazing "Before ..." series, is honored with the "Founders Directing Award" at the San Francisco International Filmfestival.

 The event includes an onstage interview and a selection of clips from his notable directing career and will be followed by a screening of latest experiment, Boyhood.

Tickets for this event are $25. It WILL sell out so order your ticket NOW!

Showtime is 7pm - we'll have to be in line an hour before the show starts to get decent seats. Bring your dinner and we'll eat in line :)

Boyhood: Linklater ups the ante with this bold, brilliant experiment in time-lapse cinema. In 2002, Linklater started constructing a fictional story centered on a seven-year-old boy named Ellar Coltrane. For 12 years, Linklater, Coltrane, actors Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette and several nonprofessionals (including the director’s daughter Lorelei) got together once a year, working out a loose storyline and incorporating his young star’s experiences into the mix. Stepdads come and go; ditto a girlfriend. Time is marked by fluctuating weights and heights, as well as a jukebox’s worth of pop songs. Not much happens…just life, in all its messy glory. A boy becomes a man before one’s very eyes. The result is nothing short of a masterpiece, an extraordinary collaborative gamble that succeeds in charting the rocky terrain of childhood like no other movie. Linklater puts his laissez-faire style of filmmaking to perfect use here, dropping in seemingly random snapshots of young adulthood and turning the “banal” moments of American adolescence—hanging out with friends, talking trash, working wage-slave jobs—into something transcendental. It’s impossible not to watch Coltrane go from baby-faced kid to emo-brooding teen without thinking about one’s own journey. They—and we—grow up so fast.

    Hi, I'm interested in going, but the link doesn't have current information and says something about sales limited to members. Is there an alternate link to get tickets?

    April 7, 2014
