The San Marcos Cinema Club is presenting the Lost River Film Festival, an indie-cinema film event, for its second year.

The Lost River Film Festival returns to San Marcos Nov. 1-4. The festival is hosted by the San Marcos Cinema Club, a film society that encourages the community to engage themselves in exploring creative insights through film. The organization created this project to help bring together film-goers everywhere. They hope to bring appreciation for new productions being made every year in San Marcos.

The film festival is spread out over four days. Premiering new short films, holding workshops, displaying interactive events and hosting exclusive parties and concerts will be featured. The name of the film festival itself honors a 1978 cinematic legend, “Piranha,” a “Jaws” rip off.

Those that plan on attending the event can expect to watch new screenings of films made by indie-cinema film directors and producers from all over the country. Some of the films scheduled to be shown are, “Sorry to Bother You,” “Idiocracy,” “Life is Fare” and “Black Bodies.” More than 40 short films are to be presented during the festival.

There will be a few VIP+ Filmmaker exclusive events during the festival that include mixers hosted by Industry and Tantra Coffeehouse. Dinner will be held at Gil’s Broiler on The Square.

There is a list on the film festival’s webpage that shows locations where the variety of films will be played throughout San Marcos. Such places include the Price Center (the primary festival venue), Texas State Performing Arts Center and Stonewall Warehouse.

The Lost River Film Festival is open to San Marcos and surrounding communities for anyone that has a liking for indie cinema. Tickets for this event can be purchased from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Price Center, located at 222 W. San Antonio St. in San Marcos. The event website has an online purchasing option that shows prices for the individual passes through Eventbrite.

San Marcos and nearby residents will get a special 50 percent off all single-screening tickets, day passes and festival badges. This information can be found on the festival’s website: lostriverfilmfest.org/

The San Marcos Cinema Club gives special thanks to the Arts Commission for funding the Lost River Film Festival and all its activities, and encourages everyone to attend a film or two this weekend.

Moviegoers can also receive extra perks at the door by using the code, “University Star”.
