The Dallas Film Festival will be taking place on April 8 through the 18th and MGF will be covering the event. There's films for everyone with any tastes. There's also award ceremonies like The Tex Avery Animation Award and the Target Filmmaker Award. There's also red carpet events, like opening night with actor Bill Paxton and Honorary Chairs Mayor Tom Leppert and Laura Leppert. There's a few good genre flicks we'll be covering, such as Earthling, The Loved Ones, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, and a special screening of Up with director and 2010 Tex Avery Award recipient Pete Doctor in attendance. I'm sure there's more stars to be announced for the red carpet, as well. You can go to the official festival website for more info, the full film schedule, and tickets. After the jump, you can read a little more about the fest and it's sponsors.
