Hot Springs Documentary Film Fest Releases List of Docs to Be Shown

herzog - Hot Springs

Hot Springs Documentary Film Institute (HSDFI) has been putting on the Hot Spring Documentary Film Festival for the last 25 years. In 1992, HSDFI incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and remains one of the few film institutes in the United States dedicated solely to the documentary film genre.

Recently, we proposed an October getaway idea out of Dallas - this upcoming film festival. To make it even more enticing, since our last article HSDFI announced film maker Werner Herzog and actress Kathleen Turner will be in attendance. We know how Dallas folk like to rub shoulders with the rich and famous. Here's your chance.

If you really are a cinephile here is the full list of the documentaries that will be shown, announced this week. You might IMDB some of these folk (yes, I just used IMDB as a verb).
