LOST River Film Fest No. 7 returns Oct. 12-15
The Price Center once again serves as the anchor venue for a wonderful long weekend of new, independent cinema via the Lost River Film Fest! The non-profit festival, now in its 7th year, offers international & domestic short films & feature narratives; social-justice documentaries; music videos; & a riveting poetry reading, running from Oct 12-15!
A few highlights:
Opening Night, Thur, Oct 12, celebrates the 50th anniversary of THE GETAWAY, the bank-heist thriller filmed all over downtown San Marcos! Texas Film Commission will be on hand – before the screening & afterward at a Garden Party in our lawn – to interview residents about when Steve McQueen & Hollywood came to Hays County half a century ago. (Contact email@example.com to schedule an interview!)
Acclaimed novelist Elizabeth Crook will also share brief memories of ornery Director Sam Peckinpah staying in their family's home off Belvin Street – & threatening to barbecue their pet dog!
On Sunday, Lost River serves up 40+ new films made by Texas directors – the Lone Star Showcases – with many screenings containing Filmmaker Q&A immediately afterward. At 3PM, is the Nominated Texas Shorts bloc, among the Best of the Fest, with numerous directors in the audience.
The Closing Night screening is from Myanmar, a lovely romantic drama titled WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WOLF?!, whose director is presently under threat, in exile, due to a recent military coup there.

Our First Tuesday SMTX Film Series partners will present an encore performance of Yakona on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. Yakona is a visual experience through the crystal-clear waters of the San Marcos River and its headwaters at Spring Lake. Follow the river on an impressionistic journey from its point of view as it flows from source to sea, through the changing seasons, through time and memory.
