San Francisco International Film Festival 2013: A Film Buff's Dream In The Fog City (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

San Francisco has served as the setting for a number of iconic films, and once a year, it pays tribute to cinematic greats in a different way.

The 56th annual SF International Film Festival returns in full force at the end of the month, and this year's lineup isn't worth missing. From charming romances to harrowing documentaries (not to mention the usual frenzy of fabulous parties), there's something for every movie geek in town.

We've rounded up the top ten screenings, speeches and events gracing our city for the star-studded two weeks. Take a look below, and visit the film festival's official website for more information.

Sundance ain't got nothing on us!
