If you're not a film festival attendee yet, it's time to get started. Each November, the Lone Star International Film Festival in Fort Worth offers an array of great feature, documentary and short films in a cozy, accessible setting. Now film lovers get a second chance to catch some of the best short films from last year's fest this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Modern (3200 Darnell St. in Fort Worth). Titles include Silent Snow and My Mom Smokes Weed, and some filmmakers will be in attendance to discuss their work. It's part of the Lone Star Film Society's Best of Fest, a monthly film series featuring some of the best films from Lone Star and the international film festival circuit, and it's the perfect introduction to film festivals. Tickets are $8, or $6 for members of Lone Star Film Society and Reel People at the Modern. For tickets and information, visit lonestarfilmsociety.org. Reel People may call 817-840-2154 or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
