I picked up the phone, and could practically hear the outstretched hand through the receiver.

“Nathan, good morning…! Bill Shatner.”

And there he is, larger than life, even on the phone. Denny Crane, T.J. Hooker, the Priceline.com Negotiator, Captain Kirk, and perhaps the best character of them all, William Shatner.

A new film festival will celebrate and highlight the work of one of the state's most ambitious filmmakers.

Slab Cinema will show the works of Wes Anderson, the Texas-based director from Houston.

Jem Cohen has made a career out of experimenting with the documentary form. The New York based filmmaker has utilized a variety of formats, including Super 8, 16mm, and video, across a filmography that includes over 60 works. He is perhaps best known for the 1999 documentary, “Instrument,” a labor of love that took more than ten years to complete. The film follows the seminal punk rock group, Fugazi, as they tour, record, and live their lives throughout the 1990s.
