Dallas Video Festival

The Dallas Video Festival starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday, spread between the Angelika, the DMA, and the Dallas Theatre Center. I went last year for the first time in a few years and was blown away by some of the stuff I saw. Dallas is missing a regular venue for more experimental film and video (like the Aurora or Northwest Film Forum), but this almost makes up for it.

The schedule is here and you can actually email Bart Weiss (the artistic director) and ask for suggestions of what to see based on what you like. bart at videofest dot org
