Austin Film Festival: Last chance to see - Wednesday edition

Just two days left in the Festival! Tonight's lineup has something for everyone, so check it out and we'll see you in the aisles.

• At 7:00 p.m. at the Paramount, Felicity Huffman (a personal favorite from Sports Night) makes what has been described as a "career performance" in our advance screening of Transamerica. If you delight in learning about how a film was made (and this certainly seems like one of those movies that should have fascinating behind-the-scenes stories), you'll want to be there for the Q&A session afterwards with director Duncan Tucker.

• Following Transamerica the AFF is proud to present an advance screening of Manderlay, the latest film from Lars von Trier, director of Dogville (to which Manderlay is a sequel) and Dancer in the Dark. That's at 9:15 p.m. at the Paramount.

• Tonight at the Regal Arbor we have the second screening of the competition documentary Walking the Line at 7:00 p.m., followed by narrative feature competition film The Civilization of Maxwell Bright at 9:00 p.m.

• The Landmark Dobie will screen Shorts Program 5 (which contains shorts such as The Braggart and Easter Sunday) at 7:10 p.m., followed by the second screening of Backseat at 9:30 p.m.

• The Bob Bullock IMAX will screen documentary feature competition winner Dirt at 7:15 p.m. (this ought to be amazing on the big screen!) and Americano with Josh Jackson at 9:15 p.m.

• If you're a short films fan you'll want to be at the Hideout Theater tonight, where the AFF will have back-to-back shorts programs beginning at 7:00 p.m. with Shorts Program 3 (includes Wake, the student shorts winner, and The Faith of Joey Rail) followed by The Houston Film Commission Presents the Texas Filmmaker's Showcase (including Young Mutt and Separated By Light).
