Sate your Bay Arean bottomless hunger for whimsy, insight, and righteous indignation with the 11th annual SF DocFest: twelve days of feature-length documentaries from around the world and more than a few from our own backyard. Fans of the now sadly defunct Jejune Institute will be pleased to hear that The Institute, a 2012 documentary about the Alternative Reality Game and its implications, is showing — and that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the 50-plus films that will be screening at the fest. Also not to miss is the the world premiere of Cruel and Unusual, a look at the impact of California's Three Strikes law by San Francisco filmmaker Sam Banning; and the opening night screening of Working Class, a gripping conversation on film with artists Mike Giant and Mike Maxwell.

Note:

The opening night screening of Working Class takes place at the Brava Theater instead of at the Roxie.

SF IndieFest says…

Highlights of the 11th edition include a multi-media film, art, design and music opening gala in a swank art gallery venue; world and North American premieres featuring the world's complex spectrum of social-political issues and a rare insight into contemporary Italian life through a trio of documentary premieres directly from the romantic land sandwiched between the Mediterranean and Aegean seas.
