Let the Show Begin



Tim porter

WELCOME. It is an honor for Marin Magazine to partner this year with the California Film Institute and the Mill Valley Film Festival to produce our first-ever MVFF Guide. In these 48 pages we include a bit of practical information about the 37th edition of the famous festival — including a schedule of films and a list of events — and take a deeper look into Marin’s long relationship with the silver screen. Did you know that most of the 1914 silent film Salomy Jane was shot in San Rafael? And while it’s well known that high school dance scenes from George Lucas’ American Graffiti were filmed at Tamalpais High, it is less known that Goldie Hawn drove along Conzelman Road in the opening credits for the 1974 movie Foul Play. We also uncover the inner workings of how films are chosen for MVFF, talk to cofounders Mark Fishkin and Zoë Elton and celebrate the festival’s uncanny knack for debuting Oscar-winning films. Whether you are a seasoned festival-goer or a first-timer, we hope you will enjoy this look at filmmaking and film appreciation in our county.


Here is your list of all the stories in the Mill Valley Film Festival Guide. To view and print out the film schedule, head to our Digital Edition.
