The 5th Annual Oak Cliff Film Festival will include 27 feature-length films and 41 short films, including a fully restored version of Eagle Pennell’s '80s Texas classic, Last Night at the Alamo, which will open the festival. Taika Waititi’s adventure/comedy Hunt for the Wilderpeople will close the film festival.

Fourteen features will make their Texas premieres among the narrative and documentary competitions and spotlight sections, and additional special events include music performances that have become a hallmark of OCFF, including bands like Tearist, A Place to Bury Strangers, and True Widow, as well as a screening of The Phantom of the Paradise at the Majestic Theatre and “David Lowery Presents Flight of the Navigator” outdoors on Bishop Avenue.

Screenings and events will take place at Texas Theatre, Bishop Arts Theatre Center, Wild Detectives, 29 Pieces, The Kessler, Oak Cliff Cultural Center, Basement Gallery, and Spinster Records. For a full schedule of events, go to the festival website.
