The 2013 Oak Cliff Film Festival Will Include Computer Chess, A Pussy Riot Doc and More

A few weeks ago, Jason Reimer's lovely teaser for the Oak Cliff Film Festival made the rounds. Today, we finally get some concrete evidence of just what will be screening.

Some highlights include Computer Chess, Andrew Bujalski's wonderfully weird ode to '80s computer programmers; Joe Swanberg's brewery comedy Drinking Buddies; Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, the documentary on Russian feminist collective Pussy Riot, which debuted at SXSW; and a screening of Robert Altman's McCabe & Mrs. Miller by David Lowery, followed by another Lowery "secret screening" of a newer film that may or may not have been influenced by Altman's movie. Can you guess what it is?

There will also be another music video showcase at El Sibil on Saturday, June 8, with musical accompaniment from Def Rain, Tony Schwa, Cutter, Buffalo Black and Night Comfort. Vulgar Fashion christen opening night on June 6 at Texas Theatre, after a screening of Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer. George Quartz closes out the weekend Sunday, June 9, at Four Corners Brewery, which also hosts the closing awards ceremony. That will be followed by a screening of Bobcat Goldthwait's new Bigfoot film, Willow Creek, at Texas Theatre.
