Hill Country Film FestivalThe Hill Country Film Festival gives movie buffs and filmmakers a full silver-screen weekend May 2-4 in Fredericksburg. As a celebration of filmmakers from Texas, you’ll see everything from comedy to documentary — and meet the people who put the movies together.

Featured films for the 2013 festival include “Buck Wild,” a comedy/horror directed by Tyler Glodt; “Stuck in Love,” a dramedy directed by Jason Wise and “Waking,” a drama directed by Ben Shelton.

Now going into its fourth year, the festival will also screen more 3D shorts than ever and hold filmmaker question-and-answer sessions, discussion panels and festival parties, along with its usual great lineup of flicks.

Hill Country Film Festival is more than just an annual movie watching event, however. Now a non-profit organization, the Hill Country Film Society also provides summer film camps, vineyard screenings, filmmaker guest lectures and more. Part of their mission is to “educate and inspire the next generation of filmmakers” and to present “Fredericksburg, Texas, as a creative destination for art, food, wine and film.”

The Steve W. Shepherd Theater, 1668 U.S. 87 South in Fredericksburg, hosts films on Fridays and Saturdays. For full details of the 2013 lineup, visit the festival website at
