The Fifth Annual South Dakota Film Festival is underway with over 50 films being shown this weekend in Aberdeen's historic Capitol Theatre.
Legendary cinematographer Adam Greenberg was given a Lifetime Achievement Award and interviewed onstage by South Dakota Public Broadcasting's Paul Guggenheimer. You know Greenberg's work from movies like "Terminator 2," "Turner and Hooch," "Ghost" and "Sister Act."
Alaska native actress Irene Bedard is part of a Screen Actors Guild group putting on a workshop Saturday for aspiring young actors. She is best known as the voice and model for Disney's animated "Pocahontas," and has also been featured in "Into the West," "Smoke Signals" and won a Golden Globe for "Lakota Woman." Here she models her new South Dakota Film Office vest for the festival audience.
Irene is so beautiful and easy to talk to that I couldn't resist having my picture taken with her.
The festival continues through the weekend. A full schedule is available at SouthDakotaFilmFest.org.
