The San Francisco Film Society continues to roll out programs for the 56th San Francisco International Film Festival (April 25-May 9). The festival will screen three familiar features which have already picked up momentum at previous festivals, for its Big Night series.

San Francisco International kicks off with Toronto debut “What Maisie Knew.” A revamp of the eponymous Henry James novel from 1897, the film is directed by Bay Area locals Scott McGehee and David Siegel and stars Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan as a divorcing couple who ignore their little girl. Alexander Skarsgard co-stars. (Early Indiewire review here.) 

For its May 4 centerpiece, the festival screens Jacob Kornbluth’s “Inequality for All,” a documentary featuring Robert Reich on social justice and economics that nabbed the Special Jury Award at Sundance earlier this year. (Indiewire review with the filmmaker here.)

SF International concludes with another film hailing from Sundance, Richard Linklater’s much-celebrated “Before Midnight,” the third entry in the director’s trilogy chronicling the romance between Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy). (TOH’s review here.)

The Film Society has set Steven Soderbergh to deliver its annual State of Cinema Address. More titles featured in the festival will be announced soon.
