Dallas International Film Festival

What a whirlwind of a weekend in Dallas.

First day involved a Filmmakers Luncheon at Pecan Lodge, which the restaurant was one of the best BBQ places in Dallas. After the Luncheon we grabbed Bill to head down the red carpet where we did interviews and photos. The first screening was very well received. The afterparty was in West Village. The rest of the night was spent at Bill's with some good old fashion ice cream.

On the second day, I explored Dallas a little bit before going to Bill's. We then did the interview with DIFF before we went to see a screening of Dealt. The film was funny, emotional, and just stunning. The second screening of the shorts also went very well with a Q&A. Amazing end with some local food outside (bring on the warm weather!). Before the end of the night Chuck and I headed over to hear some blues at Poor David's Pub.

The third day we heading back to Chicago as the festival continues to April 9th.
