The Dallas Video Festival ~ Check it Out

First, a little info via Dallas Video Fest website :

Dallas Video Fest will be Sept. 21-25, 2011 at the Angelika Film Center and The Texas Theatre in the city of Dallas. DVF is one of the oldest video-based festivals in the country and has a legacy that is both memorable and innovative. DVF has shown countless films in the past including the Emmy-award winning documentary “Freedom Riders.” It has showcased work from filmmakers such as Jim Sheridan and Michael Moore and had many notable guests including Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam, as well as television icon and actor Paul Reubens.

This year’s festival will be an event to remember with a wonderful selection of films, as well as, panel discussions, workshops and seminars. Our opening night presentation will be “Film Socialisme,” the new feature from legendary director and French New wave pioneer Jean-Luc Godard. We also will be showing the mixed martial arts documentary “Once I Was A Champion,” about the life and struggles of former UFC Champion Evan Tanner. This feature should be a delight for both fans of mixed martial arts and anyone who loves a great documentary. Another featured screening will be a documentary titled “Connected,” created by the founders of the Webby Awards. Two works from director Spike Jonze, a short titled “Mourir Auprès de Toi” and a vintage skating video of his creation, also will be featured at the festival this year. 

If you couldn’t make it to the Kessler Theater a few weeks back, head out to the Angelika Friday for a 10p.m. screening of Don’t Tell My Wife I’m A Cult Leader. Plus, this Sunday, our very own Danielle’s experimental short, La Route, will screen at noon. Hope to see you all there!
