Are you a die-hard, complete immersion festie? Did you take the week off of work so that you'd be able to see all of these great movies? We salute you. Whether you're planted in those seats from beginning to end, or just catching what you can this evening, we've got our picks for today's flicks. Just click the films' titles for more information.

1:30 (Magnolia 4) Mariachi Gringo (Sometimes you find the real you in the least likely place -- that's what happens to Edward, anyway. He discovers mariachi music, runs off to Mexico and joins a band. )

4:30 (Angelika 8) The Imposter (Everyone's talking about this crazy thriller, but we can't give anything away. You'll have to take a faith leap on this one.) or 5:00 (Angelika 7) America's Parking Lot (Spoiler alert: There's a Wilonsky cameo in this documentary about the final days of Texas Stadium.)

7:30 (Magnolia 5) Let Me Out (Who doesn't love a feel-good zombie flick out of South Korea?) or 7:15 (Angelika 7) Animation Competition (Sure, you don't know exactly what you're going to get in an animation competition, but I've never been angry at 74 minutes of cartoons.)

Dinner break, or catch Documentary Shorts at 9:15 p.m. at (Angelika 7).

9:45 (Angelika 8) Andrew Bird: Fever Year (This documentary follows around musician Andrew Bird and his relentless touring schedule.) or 10:00 (Angelika 6) Maya (This Albanian drama focuses on the unraveling of time-honored traditions and principles when outside influences creep into a once tight-knit community.)

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
