I overlooked this last week while trying to work around the Labor Day holiday, but Baylor University's Film and Digital Media department will continue its participation in the Texas Independent Film Network series this fall. That means, Waco film fans, free monthly screenings of Texas independent movies.

Movies are shown at 7 p.m. in Room 101 of Baylor's Castellaw Communications Center, and film professor Jim Kendrick usually tries to line up the film's director or writer for a post-film discussion.

The fall series opens Thursday (Sept. 6) with "Searching For Sonny," an offbeat comedy in which reunited high school friends looking for a missing friend (the Sonny of the title) become involved in a murder mystery that's strangely similar to a play they did in high school. It's the writing and directing debut of Andrew Disney, and a prize-winner at festivals across the country last year.

Disney will be on hand to talk about the film and its making after Thursday night's screening.
