April is a busy month if you’re a film fan and from state to state you’ll likely find no shortage of great (sometimes back to back) film festivals. New York has Tribeca, Boston has the Independent Film Festival of Boston (which our own Andrew Crump is covering) and Dallas has two that nearly overlap. The Dallas based USA Film Festival only runs from April 25th – 29th but hosts a lot of note-worthy films and talent in those 5 days. All programs will be held at the Angelika Film Center Dallas.
Below is the official Festival brochure which lists the films, special events, tributes, and actors/filmmakers coming to our neck of the woods. Elliot Gould, Rob Reiner, Bert Gordon, Jenna Fischer and David France are but some of the names you’ll see making appearances at the42nd Annual USA Film Festival. So have a look, and if you’re in the Big D we highly suggest you stop by and support the Fest!!
