About Dallas VideoFest 27:

VideoFest officially opens at Dallas City Performance Hall on Wednesday, Oct. 8. For the first time ever, the festival will be in three locations throughout the 10-day long run from Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Richardson, Friday Oct.9-12th, Oct. 13th, University of Texas at Arlington, Oct 15th, South Dallas Cultural Center and wrapping up at the Angelika Theater, Friday, Oct. 16th-19th.

VideoFest (VideoFest.org) is now the oldest and largest video festival in the United States and continues to garner critical and popular acclaim. VideoFest prides itself on bringing films to the theater that are rarely available to be seen anywhere else. Films like Experimental/Art Films, Animation, Narrative and Documentary Shorts as well as Documentary and Narrative Features and some hard-to-find Classic TV episodes and Classic Films are often in the mix.

History of VideoFest: Cutting-Edge Art
Merging art and technology since 1987, VideoFest has specialized in independent, alternative, and non-commercial media, presenting hard-to-find works rarely seen on television, in movie theaters, or elsewhere, despite their artistic excellence and cultural and social relevance. Even in a Web 4.0 environment where everything is seemingly available on the Internet, the VideoFest provides curatorial guidance, a critical voice in the wilderness navigating the vast and diverse landscape of media, helping to interpret its cultural and artistic significance. The event provides a communal environment for real-time, face-to-face dialogue between makers and audiences.
