Written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa, the film Dope follows a nerdy African American high schooler named Malcolm. Malcolm and his friends are invited to an underground party and are led on a Los Angeles adventure. 115 min. Rated R. 


The latest animated adventure from Disney and Pixar, Brave, is scheduled for a late June release, but the Red Stick International Animated Film Festival will be showing the film at an advance screening Sunday, June 10th at the Manship Theatre.

Brave follows Princess Merida, a fiery red head looking to break out of the typical role of royalty. Her appetite for adventure leads to big trouble for her father’s kingdom. Merida desperately turns to a witch for help, which only makes matters worse and unleashes a curse. In order to save herself and the kingdom, she uses her archery skills and her brothers to try and save it all.

Featuring the voices of Kelly McDonald, Kevin McKidd, Emma Thompson, Craig Ferguson and more, Brave comes to theaters June 22nd. Red Stick kicks off June 8th, with the special advance screening taking place on the final day. For a complete schedule of the fest’s events, visit www.redstickfestival.org.
