10/18 Oakland International Film Festival

Posted by novoscene on October 17, 2007



Now in its 6th year, the Oakland International Film Festival rolls into town this Thursday through Oct. 24th. Festival Director David Roach has been bustin’ ass over the last year to pull in quality programming and the 2007 fest includes work by Bay Area stars Danny Glover, Barry Shabaka Henley, Carl Lumbly and Terri J. Vaughn plus over 50 films from international and local filmmakers.

The subjects for the films are all over the map and include narratives on war, guilt, heroism, the art of “Mackin’”, African independence, California’s native tribes, Capoeira, “tent cities” and San Francisco’s first celebrity-Dude Martin.

Along with the flicks, expect a week of workshops, panels and parties that will provide ample chances for you to get your cineaste on while getting all schmoozy with local and national film celebs.

Cinema glamour and glitz mixed with a little East Bay grit. Mr. DeMille, Oakland is ready for it’s close-up -kwan
