The Loft Film Fest Looks Amazing

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 12:00 PM

The Loft Cinema is back with the fifth annual Loft Film Fest in just a few weeks. In additional to dozens of films over four days—you can find a complete program for the festival here—the Loft will bring a lot of filmmakers to discuss their work between Thursday, Oct. 16, and Sunday, Oct. 19.

This year's special guests include Bruce Dern, who will receive the Lee Marvin Maverick Award; Stacy Keach, who will receive the Bob Shelton Award; and novelist and screenwriter Larry McMurtry, who will receive the Lofty Lifetime Achievement Award. McMurtry will be on hand opening night, Thursday, Oct. 16, for a screening of The Last Picture Show, while Keach and Dern will attend a screening of Nebraska on Saturday, Oct. 18, and a talk about their careers on Sunday, Oct. 19.

A few that I'm looking forward to include Fort Tilden, an indie flick that took home the Grand Jury Award winner at this year’s SXSW Film Festival; Dinosaur 13, a documentary about the strange legal struggle that followed the discovery of a 65-million-old T Rex fossil discovered in South Dakota; and The Babadook, a low-budget horror flick that has been getting great buzz online. And TW editor Dan Gibson has been talking up The Winding Stream, a documentary about the Carter family's remarkable career in country-western music. Check out the whole list. If you like movies, there's something in there for you. And a big round of applause for the crew at the Loft for giving Tucson this gift every year.
