Forever Fest Snags 'Fault in Our Stars'

Sneak preview plus Q&A with John Green simulcast nationally

Forever Fest Snags 'Fault in Our Stars'

For fans of John Green’s beautifully wrought, teens-with-cancer weepie The Fault in Our Stars, the film adaptation’s opening date of June 6 can’t get here soon enough. So how does May 22 sound instead?

Forever Fest announced today a free sneak preview of the film at 12 national Alamo Drafthouse locations, including Austin’s Alamo Lakeline. In attendance at the Lakeline screening will be author/screenwriter John Green and director Josh Boone, and they’ll take part in a Q&A conducted by Forever Fest’s Brandy Fons and Sarah Pitre. The Q&A will be live-simulcast in all the Alamo locations as well as on the POPSUGAR Girls’ Guide YouTube channel. Other participating theatres include Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park (Houston, TX), Alamo Drafthouse Stone Oak (San Antonio, TX), Alamo Drafthouse Richardson (Richardson, TX), Alamo Drafthouse Marketplace (New Braunfels, TX), Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet (Kansas City, MO), Alamo Drafthouse Littleton (Littleton, CO), Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers (Yonkers, NY), Alamo Drafthouse Winchester (Winchester, VA), Alamo Drafthouse One Loudoun (Ashburn, VA), and Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo (Kalamazoo, MI). (But only the Austin audience also gets their nails done by Nails Y’all.)

Check out the trailer below – good luck not snot-sobbing all of yourself – then go here for Austin ticket info.

That’s not the only news Forever Fest had to share today: The Austin-based “girlie pop culture” festival, which proudly rocks a coolest-slumber-party-ever attitude, has announced its Forever Fest 2014 dates as Nov. 14-16. Not sure what girlie pop culture is? Let’s go straight to the source and let the ladies of Forever Fest explain it themselves.
