This year, all the WorldFest films save three -- Someone Special, Self Portrait and Manhattan by Numbers -- will be seen in a pair of side-by-side auditoriums at General Cinema's Meyerland Plaza location. WorldFest begins Friday, April 21 and runs through Sunday, April 30; a day-by-day schedule of the films can be found on page 32. The site for the non-Meyerland trio will be the Rice Media Center; those three will be screened on the same day, Friday, April 29, at 11 a.m., 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., respectively.
Tickets for individual screenings are $6, and will be available beginning one hour prior to showtime at the Meyerland (or Rice, for its screenings) box office. The only exception is the opening night ticket, which costs $10 and includes a reception at the Wyndham Warwick Hotel following the film.
