The Tucson Film & Music Festival (TFMF) is pleased to announce its complete film and music lineup for the 5th annual event, which will take place October 9-11, 2009 at various venues throughout Tucson, AZ.

Among the selection of World, U.S. and regional premieres, this year's film highlights include Director Jim Granato's "D tour," documenting the poignant story of indie rock band Rogue Wave and its drummer's quest for a new kidney; the North American Premiere of "Berlin Playground" by award-winning filmmaker Claudia Lehmann; and Closing Night Film "Rock Prophecies," featuring rock photography guru Robert M. Knight, directed by John Chester. These films join the previously announced Opening Night Film "Largo," and the Centerpiece feature "The Sweet Lady with the Nasty Voice," featuring rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson, who will also perform live on Saturday, October 10th at PLUSH.

Music festivities kick off Friday, October 9th at Hotel Congress with the TFMF Opening Night Party Extravaganza.
