The USA Film Festival has announced the schedule for its 48th annual edition, which will take place April 25-29 at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas.
Highlights will include a salute to actor Richard Chamberlain in conjunction with a special repertory screening of 1977's The Last Wave and an on-stage conversation with Chamberlain himself; a screening of Leave No Trace, writer/director Debra Granik's first film since 2010's Winter's Bone; and a closing night screening of Tully, starring Charlize Theron, written by Diablo Cody, and directed by Jason Reitman.
Other notable films will include a modern-day adaptation of Little Women starring Lea Thompson; the documentary RBG, which explores the incredible life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; Disobedience, starring Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, and Alessandro Nivola; and The Gospel According to André, an intimate documentary profiling fashion guru André Leon Talley.
The festival will also feature appearances by Dallas' own Stephen Tobolowsky, who will host a short film showcase and a screening of his 2015 documentary, The Primary Instinct; writer Daniel Pearle, who will present his new film, A Kid Like Jake, based on his play and starring Claire Danes and Jim Parsons; and director Dana Adam Shapiro and producer Carra Greenberg, who will present their documentary, Daughters of the Sexual Revolution: The Untold Story of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
In all, the festival will feature 30 feature film screenings and short film programs. A big change to the festival this year is that, thanks to support from The City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs and the festival’s sponsors, over half of the events will be free to attend.
A full schedule of films can be found on the festival website. Tickets for most paid screenings are $10. Tickets will go on sale on April 11 through www.ticketmaster.com/usaff, with advance purchases available through April 23. You can also purchase tickets by telephone at 214-631-2787.
