The Houston Cinema Arts Festival kicks off next week (November 10-17) with tons of interesting looking films. But, for film junkies who just can’t wait, the Rockport Film Festival (November 3-5) starts today!

Both film festivals are featuring the recent documentary, Honky Tonk Heaven, about Austin’s world famous dance hall, The Broken Spoke. Here’s a trailer:
