Closing Night Film to be BURKE AND HARE

The DALLAS International Film Festival Announces

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The DALLAS International Film Festival Announces

Closing Night Film to be BURKE AND HARE

The DALLAS Film Society Honors to Feature
PETER FONDA and LARRY HAGMAN

Dallas, TX, April 5, 2011 – The DALLAS International Film Festival presented by Cadillac has announced the Closing Night film will be John Landis’ BURKE & HARE. The screening will take place on April 9 at 8PM at the Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff, Dallas.

Based on the true story about the famous murderers, BURKE AND HARE follows the hapless exploits of these two men as they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in Nineteenth Century Edinburgh, then the centre of medical learning. The one thing they were short of was bodies. The film stars Tom Wilkinson, Tim Curry, Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, Jessica Hynes and Isla Fisher.

The DALLAS International Film Festival also announced that PETER FONDA will be attending the DALLAS Film Society Honors on April 8, 2011 to present the Target Filmmaker Awards to the best narrative and documentary feature film as chosen by an independent jury of filmmakers and film professionals. The winner from each category will receive an unrestricted $25,000 cash prize courtesy of Target.

LARRY HAGMAN will also be attending the DALLAS Film Society Honors to present the Environmental Visions Award to the film that best communicates the importance of environmental conservation through the art of film. Known for being incredibly eco-conscious the presentation of this award ties in perfectly with Hagman’s dedication to green issues.

Finally, ANDY TENNANT (director of THE BOUNTY HUNTER, HITCH, SWEET HOME ALABAMA) will be in Dallas on April 6 to speak at the Young Presidents Organization. He will be walking the festival’s red carpet on April 6 at the Angelika Dallas between 6-7PM.

The DALLAS International Film Festival will run March 31 – April 10, 2011. Passes and tickets are currently on sale: available via online (www.dallasfilm.org), phone (214.782.9168) and in person at the FAUXCADES Box Office: 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane, Ste 100, Dallas.
