As indie film meets ice cold in Utah, SF IndieFest's founder/director Jeff Ross announced the ninth edition of the Bay Area's indie showcase festival to an equally chilled SF Tuesday at the Roxie. Running February 8-20, the festival this year features a worldwide mix of more than 100 independent films and videos. The festival--which now draws crowds of 10,000---opens with David Lynch's much anticipated "Inland Empire." Miljenko Skoknic reports.
