At the 42nd WorldFest - Houston International Film Festival, you wont just watch films, you can learn how to make them, too. Youll see movies from all over the world: 55 features and 96 shorts are spread out over ten days. On todays schedule, youll see Lucky Days, an American film with Rip Torn and Will Patton. Lucky, which is set in the summer just before the Coney Island amusement park was torn down, follows a group of Island regulars as they face the fact that the world around them is changing, whether they want it to or not. Other flicks to keep an eye out for are Canadas Disappearing Male, Frances gender-bender La France and Italys bad-boy Waiting for the Sun. Production seminars on scriptwriting, publicity and distribution are also on the schedule for anyone interested in a DIY film career. Lucky Days screens at 7 p.m. AMC Studio 30, 2949 Dunvale.
