Celebrating its sixth year, Lone Star Film Festival is back next week (November 7-11) offering an unforgettable film experience to visitors and locals alike in downtown Sundance Square. If you're a LSFF newbie and not sure what to expect, we're here to help! First thing to know is that you can purchase individual tickets or passes from LSFF online. Individual tickets (starting at $8) allow you to select individual events and screenings. With a LSFF pass, you have two options: All Access Pass ($500) or Festival Pass ($200), both of which you'll have access to the majority of screenings and events with one single purchase. With an All Access Pass, there is no hard ticket required for screenings and covers all musical performances as opposed to the Festival Pass that does require hard tickets for screenings and only covers some musical performances. If you purchase passes or tickets online, you can pick them up a the box office when they officially open on Monday, November 5th, located on the street level of the Wells Fargo Tower in Sundance Square (201 Main Street, Suite 200).
One thing to keep in mind is that LSFF screenings are quite a bit different than watching a regular movie on the big screen, so arrive early, expect big crowds, and make sure to purchase your tickets or passes in advance. Create your personal schedule by viewing the lineup here. No festival is complete without some good food, which is why Sundance Square makes the perfect location for LSFF. Check out a list of Downtown Fort Worth restaurants. This year, you can also expect big names: 2012 Festival honorees include Billy Bob Thornton (Director, actor for Jayne Mansfield’s Car), Albert Ruddy (producer of THE GODFATHER) and Billy Jo Shaver (Texas country music singer and songwriter).
