San Francisco Feb. 2-14: Hunt for treasure in the dark at the S.F. Indie Fest, which festival director Jeff Ross calls the city's "irreverent, politically incorrect festival." The eighth annual parade of curiosities and obscure gems opens Feb. 2 with "The Proposition," written by Nick Cave and starring Guy Pearce and Emily Watson. Topping the documentary category is "A.K.A. Tommy Chong," about the comedian's recent arrest.

"Death Defying Acts" is far more diverting and well crafted than its promotion-free release campaign might suggest. Then again, for a film largely based on the notion that "nothing is what it seems," such lowered expectations may actually work in its favor.

The Scene: Tuesday's benefit premiere of Gramercy's "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" at the Cinerama Dome. A party followed at the Palace. Writer-director Stephan Elliott said it was altogether fitting that his musical comedy about three drag queens traversing the Australian Outback premiered "in what looks like a giant bra cup."

With its low-cost labor and scenic locales, Serbia has long been a popular European location for filming. Now, facing rising competition from neighboring countries such as Hungary, the Czech Republic and Germany, the country wants to up its game. The Serbian government has approved a new film incentive program specifically targeted to foreign productions. The program provides a 15% cash rebate on goods and services purchased in Serbia and a 12% rebate on labor expenses, including foreign crew and talent.

"Bedtime Stories" is clean enough to fly the Walt Disney Pictures flag, yet it's full of bimbos and cleavage and shots of Adam Sandler getting kicked in the shins by a dwarf.

"Rules of Engagement," as this courtroom-combat drama takes pains to explain, are a set of regulations that let soldiers know what the military can and cannot do when it comes to using deadly force.
