43rd WorldFest International Independent Film Festival
You're going to need lots of stamina if you want to see the entire 43rd WorldFest International Independent Film Festival. Opening night alone includes a screening of the dark comedy The Joneses starring Demi Moore, Lauren Hutton and David Duchovny, an Art Car Parade and live mariachi music. From there it's nine more days of features and shorts, along with seminars, master classes and an abundance of meet-and-greets. In all, the lineup includes 55 features and 96 shorts, of which 15 are world premieres and 25 North American premieres. Catch one of the several screenings of Easy Rider, the classic American film, running as a tribute to Dennis Hopper. Most films are screened at least twice, so with enough preplanning (and a good pair of track shoes), you should be able to see just about every title. Times vary. Through April 18. AMC Studio 30, 2949 Dunvale. For information, visit www.worldfest.org. Prices vary.
April 10-18, 2010
