AFI Dallas News

So -- the schedule is finally official, and I can now announce publicly that The Proper Care & Feeding of an American Messiah will screen at the AFI Dallas International Film Festival.

The film will screen twice during the festival, at the Magnolia Theatre in Dallas:

Screening #1: Saturday, March 24th, at 4:30pm
Screening #2: Sunday, March 25th, at Noon

Very pleased to be screening at such a prestigious fest! Scheduled to be in attendance: uber-indie filmmaker David Lynch, Sydney Pollack, Lauren Bacall, Laura Dern, Sarah Polley, and Jack Valenti!

Update: David Lynch's film, Inland Empire, will be screening directly after mine on Saturday, March 24th. Mr. Lynch himself is supposed to be in attendance to receive an award from the festival. Now, I ask you, wouldn't it be cool if he came just a little bit early to catch a little film about a guy who thinks he's a messiah?

If anyone knows how to contact him, be sure to let me know...

Congrats! But damn it - the one week Dallas does something legitimately cool, I'm going to be in LA.

Are you sticking around for the whole thing? I'll be briefly back in Dallas on the 28th and 29th.

I'm not sticking around the whole time, but I am coming back at some point during the week (kind of doing the back and forth thing because I have to teach that week)... so the short answer is: I don't know yet what my plans are.
