Fabulous Festing Big D Style
- Buy a Pass. Choose from STAR, FESTIVAL, STUDENT/SENIOR, RUSH or SHORTS Pass levels. If you have questions about what passes get you into which screenings, CLICK HERE. This is the easiest, user-friendly way to fest, AND Pass holders get into the theater before ticket holders! LOVE!
TIP #2: WHAT’S A Q&A?
- Following each screening, don’t jump up and head to the exit, because something awesome is about to happen!
- There’s always a Q&A with folks connected to each film. Directors, Producers, Cast members are in Dallas to talk about their film, and answer questions from the audience.
- Apart from seeing films you might not have access to otherwise, THIS is what makes a Film Festival so amazing. Up-close and personal interaction with the creatives behind the films.
Fabulous Festing Big D Style has been goin’ on in my life since 2011. What am I planning to see this year??? My top three:
Corsage: Empress Elizabeth of Austria is idolized for her beauty and renowned for inspiring fashion trends. But in 1877, ‘Sisi’ celebrates her 40th birthday and must fight to maintain her public image by lacing her corset tighter and tighter. While Elizabeth’s role has been reduced against her wishes to purely performative, her hunger for knowledge and zest for life makes her more and more restless in Vienna.
The Lost King: An amateur historian defies the academic establishment in her efforts to find King Richard III’s remains, which were lost for over 500 years.
Louis Armstrong’s Black & Blues: An intimate and revealing look at the world-changing musician, presented through a lens of archival footage and never-before-heard home recordings and personal conversations. This definitive documentary honors Armstrong’s legacy as a founding father of jazz, one of the first internationally known and beloved stars, and a cultural ambassador of the United States.
Y’all…I can’t encourage this Fabulous Festing Big D Style event highly enough. In this post, I shared with you my favorite documentary films, and many of them I experienced first at the Dallas International Film Festival. Support The Art of Film…and get out there and Fest!!!
