The Lone Star International Film Festival Fort Worth in Sundance Square represents the best of global cinema. The Lone Star Film Society (LSFS), has put together an extensive feature film lineup for its 2009 edition running November 11-15, 2009.
“The quality of our films signify that the Lone Star International Film Festival Fort Worth in Sundance Square is maturing and growing in stature among festivals around the world,”
Said Dennis Bishop, LSFS director, “With films of this quality, from U.S. and international talents, there is such true diversity in this selection that it offers an absolutely unique experience to expand ones horizons.” “Our films represent an eclectic cross-section of genres and artistic movements, with an emphasis on the future of the art of filmmaking,” said Alec Jhangiani, LSFS artistic director. “There are films that pursue revolutionary new directions promising to impact our craft for years to come. Several of the works are from playwrights who are forging completely new territory.
When you consider our international spotlight, with powerful films from the German Berlin School, which, has been likened to the French New Wave, and our documentaries, among other things, you are seeing major paradigm shifts. This year’s festival promises to represent a defining time in our history.” As of now, filmmakers and actors associated with the films The Scenesters, Touching Home, Artois the Goat and Tenure are scheduled to attend. Award recipients and additional attendees will be announced soon.
