Needing your film festival fix this week? Head up to Addison and check out the Texas Black Film Festival…to be held Thursday through Saturday at the Addison Studio Movie Grill. Executive Director David Small has tapped into his industry connections and created an interesting line-up of short films, documentaries and features. For complete details, visit their website TexasBlackFilmFestival.com.
Intriguing highlights look to be a documentary on the life of James Byrd (Thursday afternoon) and Nobody Knows: The Untold Story of Black Mormons (Friday afternoon); the Friday night feature Sister’s Keeper and some kid’s screenings Saturday afternoon. But there’s a three day line-up full of films and panels worth exploring. The fest will close Saturday night with an Awards Ceremony honoring films, actors, and Texas filmmakers C.C. Stinson and King Hollis.
You’ll have a second chance to see the winning films from TBFF when they screen at AFI DALLAS in late March.
