Hidey-HO! One today’s show, Todd Steinberg joins Jon and Danielle for a round table ofÂ gelatinous jibbery-do. You may remember Mr. Steinberg for his animated pilot, Don’t Tell My Wife I’m a Cult Leader. Well, he fills us in on where his project is and asks us what our weapon of choice would be in the coming zombie apocalypse. Danielle shoots a video…wherein she is covered in icing and wears a sheep’s mask. Jon isn’t nearly as interesting this week, BUT he did co-host Bitches Be Trippin’ – and Ms. Lala Zigfried is interesting enough for the both of them.
Now THAT is a flower. On today’s show Jon takes a teen to school, Diane steals a dog, Paul’s tire blows out and Matt Rox (from Don’t Tell My Wife I’m a Cult Leader) is our special guest co-host. The quartet discuss vaginal performance art, Occupy Dallas, and Judaism/Catholicism. Jon also doodles:
Dallas Video FestÂ will beÂ Sept. 21-25, 2011Â at theÂ Angelika Film CenterÂ andÂ TheÂ Texas TheatreÂ 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 â€œFreedom Riders.â€ It has showcased work from filmmakers such as Jim Sheridan and Michael Moore and had many notable guests including Monty Pythonâ€™s Terry Gilliam, as well as television icon and actor Paul Reubens.
This yearâ€™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 â€œFilm Socialisme,â€ the new feature from legendary director and French New wave pioneerÂ Jean-Luc Godard. We also will be showing the mixed martial arts documentary â€œOnce I Was A Champion,â€ 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 â€œConnected,â€ created by the founders of theÂ Webby Awards. Two works from directorÂ Spike Jonze, a short titled â€œMourir AuprÃ¨sÂ de Toiâ€ and a vintage skating video of his creation, also will be featured at the festival this year.Â
If you couldn’t make it to the Kessler Theater a few weeks back, head out to the AngelikaÂ Friday for a 10p.m. screening of Don’t Tell My Wife I’m A Cult Leader.Â Plus, this Sunday, our very own Danielle’s experimental short, La Route, will screen at noon. Hope to see you all there!
