In Los Angeles, the AFI Film Festival started last week, and it runs until November 11. Suffice it to say that by looking at just that festival's schedule, Cinematical would be able to easily put together ten film-related events that folks should attend, or at least should enjoy if they're cinephiles and they decide to attend. But due in no small part to our expansive network of contributors, who submit content from locations across the country (and sometimes from a few others), we're well aware that even Hollywood isn't always the place where everything exciting is happening in the world of film.

Before we present our picks for the film-related events of the week, we would like to remind you to please leave comments and send in emails with any suggestions you may have for evens, screenings, or other opportunities film fans may have to share with others in their celebration of the medium. Also, when and if you attend any of the events listed below, please let us know about your experiences, and let the organizers know where you found out about it!
