Starting Thursday night, Marin County hosts the 37th annual Mill Valley Film Festival. The event has grown from a small regional affair into a destination event with international prestige. It’s screened five out of the last six Academy Award winners for Best Picture, but also showcases many local independent filmmakers. This year there’s an especially strong showing by local documentarians – more than half of the 24 documentaries on offer have some kind of Bay Area connection.

This year’s film program also includes a special tribute to Robin Williams, a longtime friend and attendee of the festival. One of the documentaries features three performers that came of comic age alongside the iconic star in San Francisco’s fertile stand-up scene in the 80s.

Hey guys,

Will Durst with a few choice word about President Obama plugging the Affordable Care Act on Zach Galifianakis's internet comedy show. Not late night, not basic cable, an internet show. Looks like the Chief Executive is working his way down the marketing food chain. Won't be long before he's wearing a giant syringe costume twirling a sign on Pennsylvania Ave.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoing SB 1062, the legislation giving legal cover to businesses denying services based on the operator's religious beliefs. Yes indeed, the bigot bill went down. And the disappointment rumbling through the Evangelical community has caused snakes to be mishandled all the way to Tennessee.
