Film Festival

The Women Texas Film Festival (& Why You Should GO!)

We talk so often about the lack of representation in film and the rotten roles women are usually offered. We complain loud and long about the sad number of female directors, writers, and even critics but we know the truth. The film industry runs on $$$$$$ and that will ALWAYS be the deciding factor when it comes to what-gets-made-and-when.
That’s why we need to show up.
We need to get behind every solid piece of film-making that is offered by women and, if you aren’t already on board, The Women Texas Film Festival is a fantastic place to start.
The Women Texas Film Festival runs August 16th through the 20th and is the only full-fledged, female-focused film festival in Texas (read it’s D Magazine feature HERE). Continue reading →

“Finding Dory” Double Feature-DORY AFTER DARK!

My kids are weird because they don’t like to stay up late. They’re the ones at sleepovers who yell at the other kids Keep it down! We’re trying to sleep! They wouldn’t tackle this double-feature without sleeping bags, but it just might be worth it.

See, select theaters across the country will have a Dory After Dark Double Feature on Thursday June 16th, just before Finding Dory opens. They’re going to show Finding Nemo first, then follow it up with the brand new Finding Dory right afterwards. Disney will have some freebies to share with fans, as well. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Freeheld,” Starring Ellen Page & Julianne Moore

Freeheld is based on the true story of New Jersey Detective Laurel Hester (played by Julianne Moore), who was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. She fought the legal system so her pension could be left to her domestic partner Stacie Andree (Ellen Page), but county officials conspired to keep her from doing so. This sounds like the makings of an Oscar contender, doesn’t it? It’s even based on an Oscar-winning short documentary. Best of all, you can see Freeheld for FREE! All you have to do is click HERE to snag those passes, then take a moment to watch the trailer. Looks like you should probably take some Kleenex to this one, too. (sniff!)
