VIDEO ASSOCIATION OF DALLAS PRESENTS DALLAS VIDEOFEST 26 AT NEW VENUE




VIDEO ASSOCIATION OF DALLAS PRESENTS DALLAS VIDEOFEST 26 AT NEW VENUE

DALLAS, TX – July 19, 2013 – The Video Association of Dallas is pleased to announce Dallas VideoFest 26. The long-standing, 26-year old Fest will be the inaugural Festival for a much-anticipated new kid on the block: Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas Richardson.

VideoFest opens at its old home Angelika Film Center Dallas on Wednesday, Oct. 9. It will move to Alamo Richardson Thursday, Oct. 10 and screenings will happen exclusively in Richardson until Sunday, Oct. 13.

“One of the things we have strived for since the inception of the Fest was to create an environment that somehow spoke to the material we are showing and the culture it comes from. We have always wanted a Fest location that has been more than a black box with another film next door. We are so excited to have a partner in the Alamo that has made of business model of creating a culture for film and the people who love film,” said Bart Weiss, artistic director and founder, Dallas VideoFest.

“The Alamo is a great addition to the rich cinema culture we have in Dallas, and the VideoFest is so happy to be the first festival held there. Each theater will have 4k projection. If that doesn't mean anything to you, just know that it is awesome,” Weiss declared.


In case you haven’t heard about Alamo Drafthouse Richardson yet…

Dubbed by Entertainment Weekly, as “The Best Theater in America,” by Time Magazine as “The Best Theater Ever,” and by CNN International as “One of the Top 10 Theaters in the World,” Alamo Drafthouse offers a movie-theater experience unlike any other in the world.

The extensive menu features an array of freshly prepared food made in-house from scratch with a wide selection of craft beers, great wines, cocktails and adult milkshakes. Alamo’s attention to detail in film presentation and programming has made it a second home to movie fans all over the world, and Dallas/Fort Worth’s first Alamo opens in Richardson Friday, August 9, 2013.

“We couldn’t be happier that VideoFest is the first Festival featured at Alamo Drafthouse Richardson. Their mission, their Festival goers, their content is so in line with what Alamo Drafthouse Richardson will do, it is a perfect fit. Our goal as a company is to preserve film and help emerging filmmakers. And much like VideoFest screens videos that other festivals may overlook, Alamo Richardson will pride itself on finding an audience for obscure titles from time to time that a lot of people don’t get to see because so many theaters won’t play the content,” said Bill DiGaetano, COO, Alamo Drafthouse DFW.
