I told you there were a lot of festivals coming up. I missed two:
Dead Channels, October 3-9: In its second year, Dead Channels celebrates independent and international fantasy films, with an emphasis on horror. It’s clearly going for the same audience as Hole in the Head. Mostly at the Roxie, it moves to the Parkway for its last day. The official dates are October 2-10, but no actual films are screened opening or closing nights, which are devoted to parties at The Vortex Room.
Taiwan Film Festival, October 16-18: This modest touring festival comes to the Bay Area just as all the other post-Mill Valley festivals open. Focusing on films about “Youth and Redemption,” the festival runs October 16 and 17 at the University of San Francisco, and October 17 and 18 at Stanford. They’ll present different films at each location.
