Monday is already shaping up to be the best day of this week as The Dallas Film Society unveils the full schedule for the 10th edition of the Dallas International Film Festival. The schedule boasts 63 features and 50 shorts, with nine films making their world premieres at DIFF. Cinematographer Ed Lachman (2015’s Carol is one of his latest films) will receive the Dallas Star Award and director Monte Hellman (Road to Nowhere) will receive the inaugural L.M. “Kit” Carson Maverick Award.
I had a great time at the 2015 festival and I can’t wait to go back this year! There’s a couple of movies that I’m very excited to see, such as Elizabeth Wood’s White Girl, which is about a New York freshman who sells her boyfriend’s stash of drugs after he’s arrested for drug dealing, and Diego Luna’s Mr. Pig, a movie about fatherhood starring Danny Glover and Maya Rudolph.
