10 Films You Should See at This Year’s Dallas Video Festival
The Dallas Video Festival began the 1980s as a showcase of the then emerging genre of video art. It has evolved over the years into an eclectic program of experimental feature films, provocative documentaries, and cross-genre experimentations like this past Sunday’s Expanded Cinema, which transformed the downtown Omni Hotel’s illuminated façade into a massive screen for commissioned video art. This year, founder and director Bart Weiss says he wants to focus on the festival’s community-conscious identity by bringing the VideoFest into every corner of the city. Multiple venues—including the Alamo Drafthouse, the Angelika Film Center, Dallas City Performance Hall, and the South Dallas Cultural Center—will host two weekends’ worth of movies.
