Oak Cliff isn’t the only Dallas area community with its own film festival. The Dallas Film Society has teamed up with the Highland Park Centennial Committee to launch the Highland Park Film Festival. “Festival” is term used loosely here. The event is more or less a screening series of classic films taking place over three months (June, July, and August) on the first and third Monday of each month. And the chair of the festival will be none other than Harry Hunsicker, Dallas’ own noir novelist. Funny, then, that none of the classic films in the lineup are film noirs. Here’s the stalwart lineup:
June 3, 2013 – LAWRENCE OF ARABIA
June 17, 2013 – THE THIN MAN
July 1, 2013 – YANKEE DOODLE DANDY
July 15, 2013 – SUNSET BOULEVARD
August 5, 2013 – THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE
August 19, 2013 – THE SOUND OF MUSIC
And the full release.
