It’s time for SLIFF

The St. Louis International Film Festival is underway. I look forward to this every year. Although there are films from all over the globe, there are a few that hit close to home. Brick By Chance and Fortune tells the tale of St. Louis architecture, wealth, theft and greed that exists in our own backyards. This one is definitely on my list of must-sees. It will be show on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 4 p.m. at Plaza Frontenac.

Love Stalker is an “unromantic” comedy that was partially filmed in South St. Louis. The main character is oblivious to the fact  that “love” and “stalking” do not go together. Watch as our own beloved landmarks like the Arch, Bevo Mill and Space Saucer grace the screen.

I haven’t been this excited since watching Escaping From New York (partially shot on the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge) and National Lampoon’s Vacation (Of course, in the original movie they were driving across Poplar Street Bridge in the wrong direction). This film will be shown on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 9 p.m. at Webster University’s Winifred Moore Auditorium.
