Texas native cinema stars headline the 2015 lineup of The Houston Cinema Arts Festival (HCAF15) taking place November 12-19, 2015.

Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Before Midnight, Before Sunset), an Oscar-nominated Houston native, will present I Dream Too Much, a film he produced with director Katie Cokinos, on November 15. The festival will also host the premiere of Janis: Little Girl Blue, a biopic of Texas rock icon Janis Joplin, with its Oscar-nominated documentary director Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil, West of Memphis). Houston rap legend Bun B will lead a post-film discussion of the film and the influence of Texans in music.

Thanks to a new partnership with NASA for the inaugural CineSpace short film competition, the Nov. 12-19 festival will also feature over 20 space-themed films and programs, highlighted by “CineSpace Day” at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, on Friday, Nov. 13. The top 16 films of 194 submissions will be shown along with five winners chosen by Richard Linklater and NASA. A cash prize of $26,000 will be awarded to the winners.
