At the recent press conference for the 57th San Francisco International Film Festival, Bill Proctor, Publicity Manager for the San Francisco Film Society, presenters of the festival, introduced the Film Society’s new Executive Director, Noah Cowan.
Noah spoke at the press conference about his ideas, plans and hopes for the festival.
I had the opportunity to meet Noah and longtime festival sponsor, Maurice Kanbar, at lunch a few weeks before the press conference, and I believe he’s going to be a great addition to the Film Society, and a great leader of their dedicated and hard-working staff.
For those of you who were not at the press conference, I hope that this brief edition of our video series The Cinema Scope, will provide our viewers with a great first impression of Noah, and that those of you who are able, will attend this year’s San Francisco International Film Festival, which runs from April 24th – May 8th, 2014.
