Dedicated to raising cultural awareness and appreciation for the diverse creative population in the Arlington area, the second annual Frame4Frame Festival is set for Thursday, September 21st, through Sunday, September 24th. The festival will feature film at Studio Movie Grill in Arlington Lincoln Square, art at the Arlington Museum of Art, and music at J. Gilligan’s in Arlington.
The festival is sponsored by the Arlington Cultural Tourism Council (ACTC), the Arlington Film Society, and the Arlington Museum of Art.
Frame4Frame will screen a diverse collection of films from both studios and independent filmmakers, highlight local and national artist as well as feature national musical artists and emerging artists. There will be networking events for film enthusiasts, musicians, and artists.
Live music and art exhibits will be featured at venues around UT Arlington and Arlington, Texas.
The film portion will be at Studio Movie Grill at Lincoln Square (452 Lincoln Square, Arlington 76011). Films kick off at 6 p.m. Friday, September 22nd, with a collection of short films and the red-carpet screening of the feature film JERICO by Brandon Lewis at 7 p.m.
“We were so proud of the response and turnout to our inaugural Festival last year. We upped the ante this year, and the quality of films – local and international – that were submitted really blew us away,” said James Hawthorne, Arlington Film Society director. “We are thrilled to share all of these with our community of film lovers.”
Adonis Rose, hailed by New Orleans Magazine as a “Contemporary Jazz All-Star” and founder of the Fort Worth Jazz Orchestra, is set to open the festival with a pre-Festival party on Thursday, September 21st.
