Cinema Arts Festival

Houston Cinema Arts Festival organizers announced today a stellar lineup of actors, directors and other artists participating in the jam-packed event scheduled from November 11-15.

Guests presenting new and classic films include actors Tommy Lee Jones and Tilda Swinton, Texas filmmaker and director Richard Linklater and Mexican screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga. The arts-oriented festival will also host photographer Susan Meiselas, rock band Dengue Fever, and members of The Yes Men and Ant Farm media collective, among many other notable presenters.

The only U.S. festival devoted to films by and about artists of all stripes, the 2009 Cinema Arts Festival Houston will be held in various cultural locales throughout Houston's Downtown and Museum District areas. It is more than just a film festival; it is a vibrant multimedia arts event breaking out of the confines of the movie theater through live music and film performances, outdoor projections, interactive video installations and more.

The Festival program involves collaboration among many of Houston's extraordinary film and arts institutions, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Menil Collection, the Houston Ballet, FotoFest; Aurora Picture Show and many others. Many of their representatives serve on the board and task force of the Houston Cinema Arts Society, the nonprofit organization responsible for devising the Festival's unique identity.
