Texas Focus Film Series: ‘Also Starring Austin’
September 5, 2019 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
About the Event:
From Tobe Hooper’s first film Eggshells, to classic films from Richard Linklater and Robert Rodriguez, to underground rarities and star-driven Hollywood fare, locally shot films provide a rare ongoing time capsule of one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. These films document not only changes in Austin’s landscape, but also its unique, enduring culture. Also Starring Austin weaves together scenes from nearly 50 years of locally shot films, with commentary from some of Austin’s well-known producers, directors and industry leaders, to examine a community’s history through the cinema lens.
A cinematic exploration of the Texas narrative, the Museum's Texas Focus Film Series highlights stories by, for, and about Texans. This season's selections center around films made in Austin. This evening's program includes a film screening and Q&A with filmmaker Mike Blizzard, actor Sonny Carl Davis and Producer Louis Black.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Promotional support for the Texas Focus Film Series is provided by the Texas Film Commission.”Back to the event calendar
