SAN ANGELO – The 3rd Annual, San Angelo REVOLUTION Film Festival is scheduled for September 30 - October 1, 2022. The festival will be hosted at the Brooks & Bates Theatre in the San Angelo Performing Arts Center and the Elta Joyce Murphy Performance Hall.
San Angelo Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) is excited to once again partner with James Christopher, Director of the Austin Revolution Film Festival, to bring independent films to San Angelo.
Diann Bayes, Vice President for the San Angelo DMO said “In 2018, we received our Texas Film Friendly Designation and are excited to highlight independent films, film makers, and film actors in our city.”
During the festival, independent films will be showcased for two days, and audiences can participate in a Q&A with the director/production teams of the films. "What we will bring to San Angelo is a slate of films made very much in the spirit of Texas: films made with grit, sweat, and determination made in the face of an industry that doesn't want outsiders making movies. It's a true celebration of independent cinema and we're excited to bring those films to beautiful San Angelo and help grow that indie film community there,” stated Christopher.
This year’s festival will screen the cult classic Urban Cowboy during Friday’s prime time. Special guests, Jessie Mapes and Gator Conley, two of the stars from the movie will be in attendance for a meet and greet, selfies, and Q&A.
