Alabama a Theme for 2013 Lindsey Film Festival

This year's George Lindsey Film Festival is the first time it's been held since Lindsey's death last year.

The University of North Alabama's annual event starts Wednesday. It's the first time the festival has been held since the death last year of actor George Lindsey.
