Lost World film still

Something really cool that the San Francisco International Film Festival does each year is have a current band compose a score and provide live accompaniment to a classic silent film. Past years have included Black Francis, Jonathan Richman, American Music Club.

This year it’s Dengue Fever providing accompaniment to the Lost World. Tickets go on sale to the public today.
