Hey guys, Jana here,

diffmain

The Dallas Film Society is, once again, preparing for the Dallas International Film Festival (DIFF) which will run from April 14-24. Since it’s inception in 2007, the festival has been a lynch-pin in the film-release cycle as it represents the world and U.S. debuts of dozens of pictures. Creators and acting talent mingle with distributors, deals are made and we see the results on our own screens, it’s a magical time in the life of a film.

John Williams

The DFS has announced their ten lead off selections that will set the tone for the festival this year along with a few special selections that are certain to give you the warm fuzzies in the form of a special Salute to the Music of John Williams with a special screening of ‘E.T. – The Extra Terrestrial‘ and a special concert at the Dallas City Performance Hall featuring The Dallas Winds. This is all in conjunction with Williams being selected as this year’s AFI Life Achievement Award honoree.

I can’t believe April is almost here again. It just seemed like two weeks ago we were knee deep in 2014’s Dallas Film Festival, which had some excellent films showcased. But that time of the year is just about to begin and the good folks over at the Dallas Film Festival have announced the first 10 films that will show at the festival. Also, it looks like the fest will be honoring the excellent filmmaker John Landis as well, which is all sorts of cool.

Liz’s DIFF 2014 Film Review ‘Little Accidents’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 8th, 2014

Liz T., Here…

little-accidents

Writer/Director Sara Colangelo’s film Little Accidents delivers an emotionally searing story delivered by a talented cast whose performances will leave you in your seat after the film ends. DIFF enabled viewers to watch the film about a tragic coal-mining accident and the effects its aftermath has on members of a small community. Colangelo does not shy away from the themes of class conflict, tense family dynamics or the need to protect the ones you love, regardless of the cost.

Weekend Events in Dallas

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2010

This Friday the Texas State Fair starts.  This means tons of fried food including, fried frito pie, fried margaritas, fried smore pop tarts, and fried peaches and cream.  I try to stay away from the fried liquids since they are all TERRIBLE.  It is just donut holes with whatever liquid on it.  TERRIBLE.  I highly suggest last years favorite, the fried peaches and cream.  I hear the Fletcher’s Corn Dogs calling my name.

The Blue man Group will be playing this weekend at the new Winspear Opera House in Downtown Dallas.  I fyou have not seen this group perform, it is quite a spectacle.  Highly recommended.

This is the oldest and largest video festival in the nation. The 23rd annual fest showcases a variety of works by regional, national and international video and film artists. Presented by the Video Association of Dallas, it features screenings of about 155 works at the Angelika Film Center. Screenings include independent films, documentaries and experimental works, as well as children’s flicks.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 3.04.37 PM

I had a very fun and lively interview with David Arquette (Scream) and director Asiel Norton for their new film ‘Orion‘ at the Dallas International Film Festival. We discussed making the post-apocalyptic film where Arquette plays a Hunter who rescues a Virgin and tries to save the world. After talking about the film for a little bit, I had to ask David about his career, and that’s where things got fun.

Interview with Henry Thomas!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 18th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

henry-thomas

One of the best movies ever made is ‘E.T.‘, and I had the distinct pleasure to talk with Henry Thomas who played Elliot in that iconic film. We discuss his audition for the role in E.T. and that famous kiss, which was quite comical behind the scenes. We also get into his work on ‘Gangs of New York‘, meeting Michael Jackson and his work in the ‘Star Wars‘ universe. Henry is also a musician who has an album coming out in a couple of months, which we also discuss. This was such a fun interview that took place in Dallas, TX. in 2016 for the Dallas International Film Festival.
