Tuesday on Lubbock's First News, Tonja Hagy, Market Coordinator of the Luise Hopkins Center for the Arts (LHUCA), gave a run-down of the upcoming 9th annual Flatland Film Festival.

The film festival starts off on Thursday, October 17 and runs through October 19. The films can be viewed at the Ice House Theater. Ticket prices for Thursday are $15 to see The Retrieval. On Friday, tickets for Metropolis Elektro are $35. Films on Saturday will be shown from 11 am to 3 pm for $10 per showing. This Ain't No Mouse Music will show at 6 pm for $15 and All the Labor at 7:30 pm for $15.

Hagy described the Metropolis Elektro, showing this weekend as an encore from the production in March, as "all original... and it's everything. It's 1920s swing, it's dubstep, there's a DJ that comes on... rap." She described the weekend overall:  "It is amazing... and the sound is rockin'."

For those who want to get more for their dollar, festival passes are available for $60. Each day will be followed by an after party for festival pass holders only. To purchase tickets to any showings or for festival passes, call 806-762-8606 or visit their office located at 511 Ave. K.
