One of the oldest video-based festivals in the country returns to the city of Dallas this year! Dallas Video Fest takes place at the Angelika Film Center and the Texas Theatre from September 21-25. For years the DVF has showcased a wonderful selection of films, had panel discussions, workshops and seminars. This year is no different as the opening night presentation is the new feature from French New wave pioneer and legendary director Jean-Luc Godard, entitled “Film Socialisme”. The 2011 Dallas Video Fest will also be showing the MMA documentary “Once I Was A Champion” which tells of the life and struggles of former UFC Champion Evan Tanner. Two projects from Spike Jonze will be featured this year, and the documentary “Connected”, created by the founders of the Webby Awards will also be shown at DVF. You still have time to get your tickets!
There are some great topics that will be covered this year led out by film/media specialists that you’ll want to grab a front seat for. Some of the workshops/panels at Dallas Video Fest this year include How to Create a Good Website, Changing Landscape of Independent Media, and Become a Pro at Final Cut Pro X.
A Filmmakers Reception will be held on Friday the 23rd from 5-7pm where attendees can mix and mingle with filmmakers over cocktails. One can also sign up to become a Video Fest member for only $24. That discounted membership fee will be available that night only! The reception is free and everyone is welcome to attend. It starts at the Angelika Film Center.
