The third annual Film Fest Twain Harte will bring dozens of films and a trio of accomplished actors to the mountain town over Labor Day weekend.
The event, Aug. 30 through Sept. 2, will screen full-length and short features and documentaries submitted from within the United States and beyond.
The topics range from a professional clown to a pair of brothers dealing with oncoming blindness. The shorts include Westerns, children's fare and the story of a Bay Area goat herder.
The event raises scholarship money for young Tuolumne County residents who hope to work in the visual arts.
The celebrities coming to town are:
Corbin Bernsen, whose credits include "L.A. Law" and "Major League"
Sally Kirkland, who won a Golden Globe for "Anna" in 1987 and plays a woman developing Alzheimer's disease in "Posey," to be screened at the festival
Stuart Whitman, whose long list of roles includes "The Comancheros" with John Wayne in 1961, to be screened on opening night
The films will be shown at Twain Harte Golf Course, American Legion Hall and Twain Harte School.
Tickets start $8 for a single movie pass ($6 for festival members). Higher prices are charged for one-day and multiday passes, the opening night reception and the Sunday night awards dinner.
