Dallas International Film Festival
The 2018 edition of the Dallas International Film Festival will feature over 110 films from 25 countries. Highlights include opening night film Shock and Awe, directed by Rob Reiner and starring Jessica Biel, Woody Harrelson, James Marsden, and Tommy Lee Jones.
Other highlights include Won't You Be My Neighbor, a documentary focused on the legacy of Mister Rogers; First Reformed, a film directed by Paul Schrader that follows Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke), a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary; and Eighth Grade, a feature written and directed by comedian Bo Burnham about 13-year-old Kayla, who endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school.
There will also be special screenings of Jurassic Park and Animal House. Most screenings will take place at The Magnolia in West Village, with special events taking place at Alamo Drafthouse Cedars, Studio Movie Grill - Spring Valley, and Dallas Farmers Market.
