The San Francisco International Film Festival — the longest-running film festival in the Americas — will celebrate its 60th year in operation this month. It will run from April 5 to April 19.
   
Organized by the San Francisco Film Society, the festival celebrates all things film, and it not only features marquee presentations of movies, but also star-studded events, musical performances and competitions.
   
This year’s festival centerpiece is “Patty Cake$.” A hit at the Sundance Festival, the film is about a young, overweight aspiring female rapper trying to overcome her poor economic circumstances while remaining upbeat against naysayers near and far. It will play at the Castro Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on April 12.
