The 52nd Annual USA Film Festival will feature 24 different programs, including narrative features, documentary features, and short films. The festival will expand its program partnership with Juno Films to present four critically-lauded new films, including the Southwest premiere of A Song for Cesar, As In Heaven, Calendar Girls, and The Pact.

Other program highlights include:

  • A salute to actress Sally Struthers in conjunction with a special 50th Anniversary screening of The Getaway (1972). An on-stage conversation with Struthers and film historian Foster Hirsch will follow the screening.
  • A salute to Dallas-Fort Worth journalist Bob Ray Sanders featuring a conversation and clip compilation program including clips from some of his early journalism work in the 1970s. Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy will host the conversation with Sanders.
  • Closing night film The Duke, starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren.
