Today begins the 20th Annual St. Louis International Film Festival where some of the best and brightest flimmakers, script writers, directors and actors come to St. Louis every year to wow us with more than 400 films playing at seven different venues in St. Louis including Tivoli Theater, Plaza Frontenac Cinema, COCA, Contemporary Art Museum, Wash U, and Webster University.

The festival runs through November 20th with different extra special events to go along with the screenings such as The Artist (featuring John Goodman) Cocktail Reception happening tonight! The reception starts at 6pm at The Tivoli and is followed by the screening at 8pm. The reception includes free appetizers, beer and other alcohol and a ticket for the whole shindig is just $35.

7pm at Webster University: An Evening with Bill Plympton ($12). He will show a variety of his works and every attendee goes home with a free Plympton drawing

Saturday, November 12

11am at The Tivoli: Bubba Moon Face-FREE. I personally think any movie titled Bubba Moon Face is worth my time. Also, there will be free coffee and pastries provided by Kaldi’s Coffeehouse

8pm at Webster University: The Wildcat ($12) with live music by the Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra. It appears to be  a Monty Python-esque comedy.

Doesn’t know how to cook and survives pretty much on macaroni and cheese and pizza, so naturally, loves to eat out at restaurants. However, one day when she is married and has a family to cook for, she would love to take cooking classes and learn awesome skills like the chefs on Iron Chef America...as long as she doesn't have to clean the dishes afterwards.
