As usual, the lineup for this year's Mill Valley Film Festival is a cinematic feast for Bay Area cinephiles that lasts from October 3 to the 13th. From festival favorites to local up-and-coming filmmakers, the festival has a lot to choose from and if you can watch all films, then you probably manage your time better than me. If you aren't able to binge on all the movies, then here are 12 must-sees.
With a three-star review from Michael Bauer and Thomas Keller protégés at the helm, chef-owner Jeff Cerciello’s second outpost of Farmshop (pictured above) is easily one of the Bay Area’s best restaurants right now. In addition to looking posh (think teal mohair banquettes and Heath Ceramics subway tiles), the local, seasonal menu is swoon-worthy. Standouts include an appetizer of crispy artichokes and roasted Jidori chicken with a peach mostarda.
The weather is shockingly beautiful, so get motivated and make the brief trek across our favorite bridge to see what's up in the North Bay this weekend.
