The 60th Annual San Francisco International Film Festival returns with yet another epic film line-up showing throughout San Francisco April 5 – 19, 2017. I am particularly thrilled to see many screenings are scheduled at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. While I enjoy the ‘taste of cinema’ in various venues throughout San Francisco, YBCA is an amazing space so it’s great to see SFIFF’s partnership with them this year.
Okay, here are my SFIFF 2017 film picks and I hope to see you there as well:

Kevin Sylvester and Wil Baptist have been hidden gems for a while and that will definitely change overnight. From playing on tracks by super star artist Jay Z to performing at the White House for President Barak Obama’s Inauguration, it goes without saying that the Violin and Viola will quickly become the most sought after instrument of choice to learn among children, youth and young adults. Why? Because these gentlemen have mastered the art of blending their trained classical music skills with their love of hip hop music to break society’s stereotype, and it’s only the beginning.
The Style Room Workshop by Kesha McLeod and Calyann Barnett | National Tour | First Stop in San Francisco, CA
(December 26, 2016) On Saturday, January 14, 2017, The Style Room Workshop (SRW) makes its first national tour stop at the epic center of tourism and style – San Francisco. The workshop takes place at The Archery, 470 Alabama Street, San Francisco and it will be, by far, a stylists and burgeoning stylists’ playground of education of next-level fashion curation. The Style Room Workshop (SRW) is a comprehensive learning curriculum geared toward budding stylists looking to further hone their craft.
The ladies leading this ‘style room education movement’ are two of the industry’s most dynamic and sought after celebrity stylists among athletes and entertainers. They know the importance of what it means to pay-it-forward when it comes to sharing the knowledge and expertise of their craft, which will ultimately continue to lend creed and high level credit to the industry overall.
