Today is a good day for free film screenings in the 817

Of course, there's the big SPIKE LEE retrospective that's been happening on the campus of UTA (Arlington) all week, which culminates in a keynote lecture which he is due to present this evening (Saturday). Check for ticket availability, film screening times, and more here. Looks like all the film screenings are FREE, but you gotta pay to see & hear the man himself.

Then, there's the REEL Religion film festival "of religious significance" (huh?), here in FW. Apparently, this festival was created as a partnership between a coupla churches (University Christian and Broadway Baptist), as well as two department/offices at TCU. No matter what spin they're putting on this festival, I still think it's pretty cool that these folks are presenting a total of 18 films (some of 'em pretty cool selections) for FREE and open to the public. Screenings at the University Christian Church, a stone's throw from the TCU campus.
