The Dallas International Film Festival will celebrate the past, specifically the year 1967, with an opening night screening of Bonnie and Clyde on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. Another 50-year landmark comes with a presentation of Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner (for younger filmgoers, that’s the Get Out of its day), with actress Katharine Houghton in attendance.

As for the present and future, the festival’s full schedule, announced today, includes four world premieres, as well as centerpiece screenings of Brett Haley’s The Hero and Rememory, a sci-fi mind-bender starring Peter Dinklage. Director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Manglehorn) will be on hand to receive the L.M. “Kit” Carson Maverick award, named for the late Dallas filmmaker.

Passes are on sale now for the festival, which is back from March 30 through April 8. Most of the action, and most of the movies, are at the Angelika, with other screenings, workshops, and forums at the Highland hotel, the Magnolia Theatre, the Texas Theatre, and elsewhere.
