DALLAS, June 26 (UPI) -- A Dallas film festival featuring conservative films that is being planned would include a film debunking Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11."

The Hollywood Reporter said that the American Film Renaissance, scheduled for Sept. 9 to 11, would feature about two dozen films.

Ten films have been confirmed as have film reviewer Michael Medved and Lionel Chetwynd, whose movie "DC 9/11," starring Timothy Bottoms as President George W. Bush was shown on cable's Showtime.

The festival's co-founder Jim Hubbard said he is negotiating to show two films critical of Moore, "Michael Moore Hates America," described as a rebuttal documentary to "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Michael & Me," a rebuttal to Moore's "Bowling for Columbine," or a defense of those who own guns.

However, the film festival is much more than just anti-Moore movies.

"Conservatives complain about institutional bias in Hollywood," Hubbard said. "They need to stop whining and get out there and produce."
