Mixmaster's Guide to Getting Started at DIFF's Huge Buffet of Film

Wondering how the hell to navigate the more than 170 films gracing the screens of the Dallas International Film Festival? Well, how about some help from two DIFF-going veterans -- Merritt Martin and Jennifer Medina -- offering their best-intended, possibly challenging, but definitely enthusiastic assistance. Grab your hoodie (you'll need it), pack some snacks for line-standing in between films and check out these daily recommendations.

Pick one per day, or max out your viewing, but be sure to leave suggestions in the comments so you can help us help fellow DIFFers navigate repeat screenings. And on that note, we'll admit if we were real wrong. No shame, y'all. The fun of a film festival is trying to find your absolute favorite ... and the one that is soooo not.

Screening times and locations subject to change. Check diff2014.dallasfilm.org for the most current details.
