With virtually nothing going on movie-wise at the moment (really, I'm scraping for articles, as it appears to be for many sites), I thought I would take a minute and write a bit about the AFI Dallas film festival, which is approaching. It will be held March 27 thorugh April 6. THis is its second year. Perusing the list of films, there's a couple that spark my interest. In particular is Mongol, the story of the young struggles of Genghis Khan. It was nominated at the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Picture. The directorial debut of Helen Hunt is also on the list. Last year, AFI Dallas featured the debut of actress Sarah Polley, Away from Her, so a pattern is forming.
