The city of Arlington will soon join Dallas and Fort Worth in the film festival ranks when the inaugural Frame4Frame Festival takes place September 15-18. The festival will feature film, art, and music events at various locations around the city.

Sponsored by the Arlington Cultural Tourism Council, the Arlington Film Society, and the Arlington Museum of Art, the event is dedicated to raising cultural awareness and appreciation for the diverse creative population in the Arlington area.

The film portion of the festival will take place September 16-18 at Studio Movie Grill in Arlington Highlands. More than 20 feature and short films will be screened, the majority of which will be from Dallas-Fort Worth area filmmakers. The opening night film will be A Man Called Jon by M. Legend Brown, featuring Oscar-nominated actress Irma P. Hall.

Twelve bands will perform starting at noon every day at South Street Patio, including Jeffrey Austin, a former contestant on NBC’s The Voice, and jazz vocalist Adonis Rose. The art show Ulterior Motifs will be on display at Arlington Museum of Art.

Festival passes are $60-$100 with discounts offered to students and members of the sponsor organizations. For the full festival lineup, go to www.frame4frame.org.
