The full schedule has been announced  for the 10th annual Dallas International Film Festival, including screenings of festival favorites like “High-Rise,” “Sing Street,” “White Girl” and “Morris From America.” The festival previously announced its first ten picks, including “Weiner” and “Sonita,” both big winners at this year’s Sundance, along with Chris Kelly’s “Other People”.

Dallas will also play home to world premieres of Shaun M. Colon’s “A Fat Wreck,” Alix Blair and Jeremy M. Lange’s “Farmer/Veteran,” Ben Caird’s “Halfway” and Jeff Barry’s “Occupy, Texas.” The festival has also today announced the inclusion of USA Network’s new television series, “Queen of the South,” which will debut its pilot episode as a Centerpiece Gala presentation.

The festival will honor Academy Award-nominated DP Ed Lachman, who will receive the Dallas Star Award, and legendary director Monte Hellman, who will receive the first L.M. “Kit” Carson Maverick Award.

“This year’s 10th anniversary edition of the Dallas International Film Festival appropriately does what we do best: present films from around the world, independently produced, and locally shot productions, that are entertaining, exciting, surprising, and challenging for Dallas audiences to see for the first and possibly the only time. In our 10th year, we will once again bring to Dallas our favorite films from the festival circuit, as well as new discoveries, we’ll celebrate the work of film legends and amazing artists behind the camera, and we’ll add some brand new, fun wrinkles to our programming – like the debut of a locally shot television series and the next episode of a new VR series, as well” said James Faust, Artistic Director of DIFF.

The full schedule can be found in this announcement. Online ticket sales will be available starting Thursday, March 24th at The physical Prekindle Box Office at Mockingbird Station will open on Thursday, March 31. The Dallas International Film Festival runs from April 14-24 in Dallas, Texas.
