The Lone Star Film Festival is one of the newer such events in North Texas, but has been growing exponentially over the years. The 2016 fest, which runs in Sundance Square Nov. 10–13, will include 134 screenings, including 34 features and documentaries. Among the line-up are some that look especially inviting for LGBT and Texas audiences, including:
Bear with Us, a screwball comedy featuring Cheyenne Jackson about a couple besieged by a bear (it’s not The Revenant).
Honky Tonk Heaven, a documentary about famed Austin dancehall the Broken Spoke.
The Other Kids, pictured, a combined fictional/true hybrid (called a ficumentary) about teenagers today, including tomboy Abby and her apparent attraction for new girl Cricket.
Jackson, a documentary about the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi.
