The first annual Marfa Film Festival looks like a great excuse for a road trip. They haven’t announced the lineup yet–but does it really matter? A weekend of “wide-open plain, distant mountains… incomparably starry sky” and outdoor screenings? I’m sold.
Two Academy Award Best Picture nominees were recently shot in and around Marfa (No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood), and the town of 2,000 has recently become something of a hip tourist destination. I can see why.
