Alex Gibney’s documentary Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine and Michael Almereyda’s drama Experimenter bookend the 58th San Francisco International Film Festival, set to run from April 23–May 7.
James Ponsoldt’s The End Of The Tour is the Centerpiece selection.
“This year’s Big Nights focus on iconic real-life figures who have made a significant impact on the worlds of technology, business, culture and science,” said San Francisco Film Society executive director Noah Cowan.
“These films feel especially relevant to San Francisco today and the ongoing national conversation around celebrity, privacy and our digital lives. They are also, not incidentally, exceptionally well directed and acted films by leaders in contemporary cinema culture.”
Festival brass will announce the complete programme shortly.
