The Lost River Film Festival is going to be quite the event here in SM the first week in November. Tickets are half price for locals, so keep that in mind when you read the schedules and ticket prices on Facebook and their website. Day passes, weekend badges, or VIP tickets, or even a single movie ticket can be purchased in advance from their website. Lost River Film Fest but keep in mind that their facebook event page is where they put daily updates, so follow that so you see updates. It starts in just one week and runs all day, Thursday through Sunday. Two films are water related. Lost River is the river in the film Piranha, made in the 70’s in San Marcos, and a piranha is the logo for the festival. Someone involved in that film will introduce Piranha the night of Nov. 2, Thursday, but they are looking for anyone else who was in the film from San Marcos. It is at 10 p.m. at the Price Center, with a garden party on the front lawn with Chief and the Doomsday Device at 9 beforehand (and Joe Nick Patoski at 7:30 with the Sir Doug movie inside). Piranha is only an hour and a half. But all kinds of films will be shown all day, all over town, starting at 10 a.m. that day, and continuing. Some events are marked as Free like the garden party. The other water film is a documentary about Standing Rock, defending water, 2 p.m. Saturday at the LBJ Museum downtown. There are films from all over the country, long and short, something for everyone. ABOUT 75 EVENTS AND MOVIES ALTOGETHER. $5 for a film for locals, $15 for a day pass for locals, or many events are free, you can take part in this first ever Lost River Film Festival too. $50 for the weekend badge for locals.
