Okay, fashionistas and film geeks! It’s that silver-screen time of year here in Bernal Heights, because this week we get to enjoy the glamorousness that is the 10th annual Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema festival.
Bonus: Here’s the sexxxy new trailer from BHOC, featuring jaw-dropping footage from Nathan Shipley’s magical quadcopter:
BHOC is exactly like Sundance or Telluride, only without so many people wearing furry apres-ski boots. As locals, we know the drill: Free films. Most are short. Most are shown outside. Emphasis on local topics and filmmakers. Bring seating. Dress warmly. Snuggle as necessary. Enjoy.
