Noah Cowan was named executive director of the San Francisco Film Society a mere two months before the organization's biggest event: the San Francisco International Film Festival, which starts next week. Cowan, who comes to the organization after serving as artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival, is the group's fourth executive director in three years. We'll talk to Cowan about this year's festival selections and his plans for San Francisco's film culture.
