KidFilm Festival (USA Film Festival )

NAME OF FESTIVAL: KidFilm Festival /USA Film Festival
SINCE: 1971
WHERE: Dallas, Texas
WEBSITE: www.usafilmfestival.com
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: Following its original incarnation in 1970 as the “Screen Generation Film Festival,” and a (pre-Cannes) visit from filmmaker Robert Altman with an early cut of MASH and pre-release screening of The Sterile Cuckoo with Alan Pakula (complete with coast-to-coast hook-up so that students in San Francisco and Manhattan could participate in the post-screening discussion) and Michael Wadleigh with Woodstock, the USA Film Festival was officially created in 1971. Both Altman and Pakula, having provided the inspiration for the creation of the Festival, became our life-long friends, visiting the Festival and Dallas with their films many times throughout their prestigious careers.
