The SF in SF lecture series and the Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition Convention are hosting a steampunk film-festival in San Francisco on Mar 10 (this coming Wednesday) -- they're asking attendees to come in costume, and will be screening The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello, Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog and Perfect Creature. They're asking $10 at the door, with proceeds to fund the next Nova Albion; bar proceeds go to Variety Children's Charity. Sounds like a kick-ass side-trip from this week's Game Developer Conference in SFO.
