Nirvana for Film Addicts

The 13th Annual Crossroads Film Fest is April 13 to 15 with events in Madison, Fondren and downtown Jackson. At the Malco Grandview Theater in Madison, movie buffs can view independent films from Mississippi, the United States and around the globe. Expect to see films from Germany, Poland, Bosnia, Russia, and South America.

"There are not a lot of people that see independent films because of the commercial-movie industry," said Michele Baker, coordinator of the festival.

On Saturday, April 14, the Mississippi Museum of Art hosts an art-making event in conjunction with the exhibit "Curious George Saves the Day: The Art of Margret and H. A. Rey," Baker said. For music lovers, Crossroads will again have a music video showcase of musicians. To round out the numbers of musical acts this year, Crossroads will feature musicians based within a three-hour driving radius.

An all-access pass for the entire three days of festivities will be priced at around $59, and Crossroads members will receive a $10 discount (prices subject to change). Individual screenings and events will be priced separately. Buy your tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com. For information, visit http://www.crossroadsfilmfestival.com.
