The festival will be held Oct. 26-28, and screenings will take place at the Sugar Land Auditorium, 226 Lakeview Drive, Sugar Land. The opening film, “Friends by Chance,” tells a coming-of-age story about a hot-headed 22-year-old troublemaker and an elderly poet living with Alzheimer’s disease forming an unlikely friendship, according to a release from Stevens PR Group.
