DALLAS International Film Festival opening ceremonies included Michael Cain, Chairman of the DALLAS Film Society, Mayor Tom Leppert, Liener Temerlin, Founder & Chairman Emeritus of the DALLAS Film Society, and other dignitaries.  There was a mad dash at the box office next to Hotel Palomar Dallas for tickets and patrons to pick up passes.  The excitement continued across Dallas at the Magnolia Theatre in West Village, Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center in the downtown Dallas Arts District, and Studio Movie Grill in north Dallas.  Film directors, producers, and actors discussed the films in the theatre, lobby, and parties afterward.
