Dallas International Film Festival

April 4-14. $10 per movie. The Angelika and Magnolia are the main locations and ideally I'd like to make a day or two of it: see a couple movies and eat in between. I started going in 2010 and have seen a few excellent films! Only 10 movies listed at the moment - many more to come. For more info go to http://www.dallasfilm.org.

    Another memorable night at the DIFF: we turned lemons into lemonade with a quickly-devised Plan B, and now I'm looking for ways to pass the time until I go back Wednesday and Thursday...

    Okay, so things are pretty much set. So far we have 6 attendees, will be taking 2 vehicles, and Zach, if you're going, let me know pronto.

    I have been able to secure 5 tickets so we are good to go!

    Another update - and not very good news: the website would only allow me to purchase ONE ticket for the movie. My worst fears were confirmed: once my transaction was completed, the status was changed to "Rush," which means that anyone else who wants to go is gambling in the hopes that passholders don't show up in order for the festival's staff to free up some seats. At this point, even with 6 days left until the show, there are no guarantees of getting in if we go in a large group. Now I will say that I got lucky last year when I saw the best (and last) movie of the four trips I made, so it's risky but I leave the decision up to each of you...

    Also, Mud is showing only once. Wanna bet McConaghey will be there? Then we're talking sold out, I may just have to buy tickets, eh???

    Well, shoot. May have screwed up here as vouchers don't ensure admission to any movie, and those with tickets & passes are seated first. What to do?

    Ok, the movie actually begins at 7:15. The time I posted was for those who are coming to my house.

    Just purchased a pack of vouchers, so now each ticket is $7.50. Mary, Kevin, Jeff and Wayne are in on the trip set for Friday to see "Mud" starring Matthew McConaughey. More are welcome, but my car only seats 5 and we'll be car-pooling from my house so you could just meet us at the theater.

    I fly to Cincinnati April 1st through 3rd and then again April 14th through 18th. Should be able to do the evening of the 5th and the 12th. Then among the 6th, 7th, and 13th, I can do one full day and then evenings on the other two. Can't do the 14th, flying out mid-day. Also weekdays are out and weeknights are a bit iffy.

      Okay. I haven't decided on anything other than the 11th so far (my sister has to get her fix with the Korean films and I do expect they'll be good), but here's an enticing option: on Friday the 5th, "Midnight's Children" is showing from 7-930 or we could see "Mud" starring Matthew McConaughy from 715-925. Check the website for film summaries.

    Pretty safe to say we will spend Thursday the 11th @ the Magnolia for 2 Korean films (A Company Man & Azooma) and lots of good food & drinks.

    The movie schedule is now up. 175 choices? Wow...

    Last year I was so very honored to see The Intouchables, from France. It is now out on video and I recommend it with the utmost enthusiasm. Have some tissues with you because you'll laugh til you cry!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
