This week South Dallas will play host to one of the best events the city holds, the 7th Annual Oak Cliff Film Festival. If you’ve never had the pleasure of attending, it’s a great excuse to see some of the historic theaters that pepper the south side of town. There’s a VIP badgeholder party Wednesday night at The Wild Detectives but the “film” portion of the film festival runs from Thursday to Sunday. The fest is book-ended with a documentary about rocker Joan Jett entitled Bad Reputation and Never Goin’ Back a coming of age film about two high school dropouts from Dallas. The latter is written and Directed by Garland’s own Augustine Frizzell. Some other notable highlights include; Damsel, a western starring Robert Pattinson (of twinkly vampire movie fame), a new restoration of The Passion of Joan of Arc with a live score accompaniment, and an outdoor screening of Being There starring Peter Sellers. One of the great things about OCFF is their dedication to short films. This year is no exception with almost 5 hours of short films on the schedule. There are always a few shorts that pop
