Angelika Film Center
The Video Fest is coming soon. We start October 12th and run through October 18th. To get you ready for the festival I have been doing video interview chats with some of the filmmakers with films in the festival.
The chats are a Q&A about the film before the film, to give you insight when deciding what to see. If you have questions, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The schedule should be up soon on our new website. (Thanks, Dev.) You can buy tickets and see the schedule here:
Enjoy! We will upload more in the next few days.
Let me tell you about the special event we have on Monday, Oct. 12th. We have an art exhibit of the posters of Yen Tan at the Texas Theatre, a filmmaker who used to live in Dallas and now lives in Austin. Aside from making great films (we have shown his films at the VideoFest and on Frame of Mind, he has designed posters for most of the great indie films in the region.
First, we will have the opening where we view the work. Then we will see the work on the big screen and Yen and I will discuss the pieces. Next, we will show The Outfit, his new short that also played at DIFF. Inspired by actual events, the film is about an outfit that unwittingly triggers rumors about the sexuality of a conservative congressman. After that, we will show a few trailers for the Video Fest and hang out.
Tuesday, we have our really big event, Metropolis/Film/Music/Dance–a one night only, one of a kind experience.
On Wednesday, we are showing the Black Panther film with Producer Laurens Grant in attendance at South Dallas Cultural Center. I understand that there will be members of the original party in attendance as well. Then we settle into the Angelika from Thursday night to Sunday night. New to the Fest this year are live acts before night films at the Angelika, so get to the theater early to experience something extra-special. We have a special day featuring the history of film technology on Saturday, so don’t miss that.

The 28th edition of the Dallas VideoFest from October 12-18, 2015. Overall, approximately 100 videos including narrative and documentary features, shorts, animation, and experimental videos will be screened during the 7-day Festival.
This year’s films and events will, of course, include the latest videos, which are not likely to be seen anywhere else, and we also include very special presentations in the history of film with the centennial celebration of both.
