Austin Film Festival: Last Chance to See - Monday edition

We're into the last four days of the Austin Film Festival, which means that the second screenings have already begun and you probably have only one chance left to see some of the amazing movies in this year's event.

The Hideout is hosting the last showing of the Documentary Shorts program including the winner (Still, Life) and others. I'd like to give a special shout-out to Brett and Keith of Run to Jay's; they graciously answered a bunch of interview questions yesterday but I haven't had the time to transcribe them from the audio file. Go see all of the amazing doc shorts tonight at the Hideout at 9:00 p.m., following the second showing of the documentary Clear Cut: The Story of Philomath, Oregon. You won't regret it.

Also showing tonight:

• The aforementioned advanced screening of The Sisters with Mary Stuart Masterson in attendance (Q&A afterwards), followed by Special Thanks to Roy London at the Regal Arbor.

• Our IMAX Asian Horror Double Feature with the Pang Brothers' Abnormal Beauty (filling in for the previously scheduled R-Point) and Three... Extremes. This is going to be awesome on that giant IMAX screen at the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum. The fun begins at 7 – please be aware that you must purchase tickets to both shows if you want to see them both (unless you have a conference badge or film pass, in which case admission is as usual).

• Finally, tonight at the Dobie the narrative feature film winners will be shown, beginning at 7:30 p.m. They are: Runaway (Narrative Feature Jury Winner), Wake ( Narrative Student Short Winner), and Goodnight Bill (Narrative Short Winner).
