It’s back! The wonderful Mill Valley Film Festival has already started but there are still tickets to be had.
The Mill Valley Film Festival is an annual, non-competitive film festival presented by the California Film Institute. Known as a filmmakers’ festival, the annual 11-day festival, based in Mill Valley, California, offers a non-competitive environment for exhibiting the best cinema from around the world. The 2015 Mill Valley Film Festival will take place October 13-18.
Founded in August 1978 by MVFF Director Mark Fishkin, the Festival has established an impressive track record for launching new films and the careers of new filmmakers and is well known for the quality of its programming. As the only prominent fall film festival in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Mill Valley Film Festival is also an important industry resource—both for its emphasis on films that have not yet secured US distribution and for fall launches and northern California Academy Awards campaigns.
The festival will open with screenings of Tom Hooper’s “The Danish Girl,” starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander, and Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight,” starring Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams. The festival will close a week later with “Suffragette,” starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep. The schedule also includes spotlights on such talents as Sarah Silverman, Brie Larson and Carey Mulligan, as well as tributes to Ian McKellen and Catherine Hardwicke.
Other films on the lineup include “Truth,” “Brooklyn,” “The Assassin,” “Carol,” “Beasts of No Nation” and the U.S. premiere of Justin Kurzel’s “Macbeth,” starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

Have a wonderful time!
