YOUR DAILY GUIDE TO THE 2010 TACOMA FILM FESTIVAL >>>

"His name is Chris Sand. He grew up in Ronan, Montana on the Flathead Reservation.  He now lives in a house in Dunn Center that he bought for $1,000.  He's a truck driver when he has work, which he currently does not.  He has a bulging disc in his back from a lifetime on the farm.  He's also one of the most original and inventive musicians anywhere.  He's a cowboy who raps." Weekly Volcano scribe Mark Thomas Deming wrote this paragraph as part of an interview he did with Chris "Sandman" Sands in 2009.

Filmmaker Elizabeth Lawrence grabbed a camera and documented the life of this rapper who looks like Woody Guthrie but sings like Dr. Dre. The resulting film, Roll Out, Cowboy, screens tonight at 8:15 p.m. inside The Grand Cinema as part of the 2010 Tacoma Film Festival.

Also on the TFF docket today are family shorts, documentary shorts, the Academy Awards nominated The Last Campaign of Governor Booth Gardner, late night shorts and much more. Click here for today's full schedule.

Not to be confused with TIFF - which is the most important film festival in the Americas - Tacoma Film Festival was created to keep the old Grand alive. Seriously. Why else? Since it's beginning just a couple of years ago, the festival has received narrative shorts produced by local film makers and what does the festival do? Ignore them as they grovel after outside pieces. The one thing the festival can have going for it is Tacoma itself. In my opinion, a city second only to Paris in art expression. I'd rather spend a rainy Saturday afternoon sipping a Beefeater dry Martini at Paddy Coyn'es, or enjoying a game and a Reuben sandwich at the Parkway Tavern, or just watching real-life experiences unfold at the coin laundry across from the Corner Bar on N. 6th and K! Snuff TFF.
