The USA Film Festival announces the schedule of events for the 51st Annual USA Film Festival, April 21 – 25, 2021. The in-theater program will be held at the Angelika Film Center, 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, Texas.
One of the oldest festivals in the U.S., the USA Film Festival celebrates its 51st anniversary this year. The first festival to devote itself to the American filmmaker back in 1970, today presents over 50 days of diverse programs every year.
“We are so glad to be able to celebrate Dallas Arts Month and bring our program to the community.” USAFF Managing Director Ann Alexander says. “With support from our Sponsors, this year’s program will be presented as all-free-admission.”
“We know that a lot of people are experiencing financial challenges and that people have missed being able to get out to a theater and see a movie. We wanted to present a diverse and accessible program.”
This year’s feature film programs include Johan von Sydow’s Tiny Tim: King For a Day; Mariem Pérez Riera’s Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go For It; Sonia Kennebeck’s Enemies of the State; Euros Lyn’s Dream Horse; Anders Thomas Jensen’s Riders of Justice; Nicole Riegel’s Holler; Ben Sharrock’s Limbo; Luke Holland’s Final Account; Ümran Safter’s Leave the Door Open; Tracey Deer’s Beans; Joe Duca’s Her Name Was Jo; and Arnold Lim’s All-in Madonna.
“The full line-up includes new feature films, documentaries and true stories, and dozens of short films” Alexander continued. “And, of course, safety measures will be in place. Masks will be required and social distancing seating protocols will be observed for this year’s contact-free event.”
Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance by calling The Festival office at 214-821-6300 beginning April 16th. No walk-up tickets will be available.
Additional programs featuring Master Artists will be scheduled later in the year.
