USA Film Festival Announces Schedule

by Stephen Becker 16 Apr 2010 10:29 AM

The USA Film Festival announced its schedule Thursday afternoon.


Apologies for just now getting to this, but the USA Film Festival announced its schedule Thursday afternoon. (I skipped out early yesterday to speak at a friend’s SMU journalism class. Note to self: add “college lecturer” to resume.)

The festival will be held April 28 – May 2 at the Angelika Film Center, which has been home to much of the current Dallas International Film Festival. Upon first glance, some of the highlights are:

Harry Brown – Michael Caine plays a widower whose neighborhood is overrun with crime. And while he may be getting older these days, he’s still spry enough to deliver a little vigilante justice.  (April 28, 7  p.m.)

Ondine – Neil Jordan directs fellow Irishman Colin Farrell in this story of a fisherman who finds a woman trapped in one of his fishing nets.  What starts out as a Disyneyesque romance turns dark when a figure from the woman’s past shows up.  (April 30, 7 p.m.)

His Name is Bob – Filmmakers Lisa Johnson, J. Sebastian Lee and Heather Lee spent six years documenting the life of an East Dallas homeless man who’s got a lifetime of stories to tell. (April 30, 7 p.m.)

We’ll have a more in-depth preview as we get closer to the festival. Until then, you can check out the entire lineup here.
