This week Stark Insider will once again be on location up north of San Francisco in Marin for the 37th edition of the esteemed Mill Valley Film Festival. October 2-12 are the dates to mark down on your calendar. Several venues are used, but the two most common are the Throckmorton Theatre and the Rafael Film Center, both are just a hop, skip and jump over the GG Bridge (or the Richmond Bridge for those commuting up from the East Bay).

As in past years, some of the most anticipated Oscar forerunners will be screened at MVFF. Past films making appearances here, such as The King’s Speech, Argo and, most recently, 12 Years a Slave have gone on to win Best Picture Oscars, thanks in part to strong festival showings including those at Mill Valley.
