Women filmmakers, Lone Star directors, and Robert Redford are among those honored at the 2012 Houston Cinema Arts Festival, an annual event that features films by and about visual, performing, and literary artists.
This year’s roster kicks off with Love, Marilyn from director Liz Garbus and ends on November 11 with Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel.
Both films, introduced by their directors, will build on this year’s celebration of women directors and independent distributors. Industry insiders are buzzing about Bradley Cooper’s performance in Silver Linings Playbook (which also stars Robert DeNiro, Jennifer Lawrence, and Julia Stiles). The film will be in theaters for Thanksgiving, and we’re betting our Junior Mints that it’s this week’s must-see screening.
