Coverage Roundup: From Fort Worth

The view from the Forth Worth Star-Telegram:
"AFI DALLAS proved to be a triumph of public relations: For the past month, I couldn't drive to work without encountering a large billboard for the festival at University Drive and I-30. In Dallas, billboards and posters have been ubiquitous since January. Festival organizers also did a great job of enticing the local media, which treated the opening-night event as if it were the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscars combined."
Fort Worth's Lone Star Film Society plans to launch the Lone Star International Film Festival in conjunction with Fort Worth Sister Cities in November 2007.
