OK, I’m just going to say, “Where did the weekend go?” I got so involved with the Dallas International Film Festival and some of the wonderful filmmakers that somehow I woke up and all of a sudden it’s Monday. Today I’m sharing some of the highlights and what I wore to survive opening weekend.
Film Festivals are typically very casual, except if you walk the red carpet. This was the first film that I was in that played in a film festival. Happily, I got to join in with THE MINK CATCHER, including writer/director Samantha Buck and Executive Producer Katherine Harper. I also celebrated the filmmakers of UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT and went to both screenings. Jenna Jackson Gilbert and her brother Anthony Jackson are amazing documentary directors who tell their subjects story so well that this is their second time here at DIFF. Two yeas ago they were here for TOMATO REPUBLIC. I love getting to see Matt Wilkerson, Whitney Graham Carter, Sarah Adams (be sure to check out her series SUPPORTING ROLES – you will cry from laughter) and all the actresses from THE MINK CATCHER (photo above on the red carpet). Celebrating filmmakers and connecting with great people. – that’s what I love about film festivals!
When you weave in opening night, parties, receptions, dinners and more and you see why I can’t believe it’s already Monday. Below I am sharing my looks that got me through the weekend. I have linked all of my items for you directly beneath the photo. By the way, the DIFF continues through Sunday, April 24th so you have plenty of time to catch some great films. Congratulations to everyone at DIFF, especially Artistic Director James Faust and Senior Programmer Sarah Harris. Bravo!
Happy Monday. Try to stay dry! xoxo- Tanya
