The Dallas Film Society has today announced the full schedule for the 10th
edition of the Dallas International Film Festival, including screenings of festival favorites like "High-Rise," "Sing Street," "White Girl" and "Morris From America." The festival previously announced its first ten picks, including "Weiner" and "Sonita," both big winners at this year’s Sundance, along with Chris Kelly’s crowdpleasing "Other People," which opened the festival in January.
Dallas will also play home to world premieres of Shaun M. Colon’s "A Fat Wreck," Alix Blair and Jeremy M. Lange’s "Farmer/Veteran," Ben Caird’s "Halfway" and Jeff Barry’s "Occupy, Texas." The festival has also today announced the inclusion of USA Network’s new television series, "Queen of the South," which will debut its pilot episode as a Centerpiece Gala presentation. Of this year’s 114 film (64 features and 50 shorts), nine are making their world premiere at DIFF.
The festival will honor Academy Award-nominated DP Ed Lachman, who will receive the Dallas
Star Award, and legendary director Monte Hellman, who will receive the
first L.M. "Kit" Carson Maverick Award.
Of today’s announcement, James Faust, Artistic Director of the Dallas Film Society, said "This year’s 10th anniversary edition of the Dallas International Film Festival appropriately
does what we do best: present films from around the world, independently produced, and
locally shot productions, that are entertaining, exciting, surprising, and challenging for
Dallas audiences to see for the first and possibly the only time. In our 10th year, we will once again bring to Dallas
our favorite films from the festival circuit, as well as new discoveries, we’ll celebrate the
work of film legends and amazing artists behind the camera, and we’ll add some brand
new, fun wrinkles to our programming – like the debut of a locally shot television series.
and the next episode of a new VR series, as well."’

The Dallas International Film Festival runs from April 14-24 in Dallas, Texas.
