The documentary Maya Angelou and Still I Rise and the animated Nerdland featuring Paul Rudd, Mike Judge, Patton Oswalt and Hannibal Burress have been added to the schedule of the showcase feature films at the Lone Star Film Festival in Fort Worth, it was announced Thursday.

The Angelou documentary features interviews with President Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Quincy Jones, Oprah Winfrey, Common and Cicely Tyson, among others. Nerdland, from director Chris Prynoski (Metalocalypse), tells the story of two guys on the hunt for fame in L.A.

The 10th anniversary edition of the festival, featuring more than 50 features, shorts and documentaries, runs Nov. 10-13 at venues in Sundance Square, including the Four-Day Weekend Theater and the AMC Palace.

Lion, starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara and a hit at the Toronto International Film Festival, was announced last month as the first of the showcase feature films. It closes the festival Nov. 13.

Other showcase feature movies include the documentary Who Is Clinn Rippy?, the action-adventure The Rendezvous and the family comedy Aria Appleton.

More films and events may be added to the schedule in the coming days.
