DocFest, the second annual SF Documentary Film Festival
(May 16–21, 2002), presents a very exciting slate of films, both long and short, including many award winners and world and west coast premieres. Eschewing the kind of overly serious documentaries that get nominated for Oscars, SF DocFest documentaries instead poke into the nooks and crannies of our great North American subcultures (with detours to Israel, Germany, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands), revealing the strange and wonderful worlds that often lie right under our noses.

For many people, documentaries are 'good for you,' like taking a pill or going to school. But documentaries can be more like your favorite breakfast cereal -- great tasting, but packed with vitamins and minerals. And maybe even include little marshmallow treats or something.
