Trail Dance Film Festival
On the trail to Oscar.
Friday, Jan. 25-Saturday, Jan.26
As film festivals go, the world may pay more attention to Cannes and Sundance, but Duncan’s Trail Dance Film Festival has become one of the industry’s brightest spots for new films and entertainment, not just in the southwest, but in the world. The 2013 Trail Dance Film Festival is set to shine again with nearly 100 independent films scheduled for screening at the annual event. Festival goers can spend all of Friday and Saturday (Jan. 25-26) watching comedies, dramas, thrillers, shorts and feature-length films at the Simmons Center, 800 Chisholm Trail Park, and at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, 1000 Chisholm Trail Parkway, both venues in Duncan. Those in the industry (or working to get there) can network and learn about film production and distribution. The weekend filled with film and musical entertainment closes with the Golden Drover Awards and the after party. Passes to the festival are $7 to see one film (or two hours). Passes for Friday are $20, while Saturday passes are $25. The weekend pass, $40, gets you in to all the films and events. For details, go to www.traildancefilmfestival.com.
