It Came From Dallas 9 — The Show with 9 Lives

Dallas Producers Association’s fund-raiser:
It Came From Dallas 9 — The Show with 9 Lives
returns Thursday, Feb 19 at Alamo Drafthouse

After a year’s hiatus, the Dallas Producers Association’s premier fund-raising and showcase event, “It Came From Dallas,” returns with the promise of a fun-filled and exciting evening of entertainment and nostalgia.

“It Came From Dallas 9 – The Show with 9 Lives” is the Dallas Producers Association’s ninth celebration of Texas filmmaking and filmmakers. The Presenting Sponsor is Replicopy ( and the show will roll on Thursday, February 19, 2015 at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 100 South Central Expressway at Beltline Rd in Richardson.


The event is free to the public – although voluntary donations are suggested at the door. Revenue derived from the show allows the Association to continue its important work in promoting the work of the industry along with supporting various related programs in the community, both local and statewide. This is inclusive of the Texas Moving Image Incentive Program bringing production jobs to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and the State of Texas, as a whole.

Program details

Included in the program’s segments will be interviews with a variety of local filmmaking professionals and celebrities introducing clips from films made in DFW and across Texas throughout the years. There will also be interesting anecdotes along with several “behind-the-scenes” stories about their experiences working on films, television, commercials, radio, documentary and corporate films.

Film historian Gordon K. Smith will be back with “Gordon’s Vault”, an always-impressive collection of fun trailers and clips from cult classic and lesser-known films made in the Dallas area or around the state of Texas.

Music in Media

Bob Dauber, chairperson and executive producer of the show adds, “This year, we have a brand new category segment – music that came from Dallas, presented in feature films, television programs and commercials, documentaries and radio spots.” An often, overlooked fact is that Dallas was at one point in the top three markets in the country in terms of music production, particularly, the jingle business. For those who attend, you will recognize a lot of the musical selections, as they were parts of your everyday lives, if you’ve lived here for a while. Others may not be so readily identifiable to you, but they are, nonetheless, proud pieces of work that have come out of the industry.

DPA’s Film Pioneer Award

As is another highlight of the It Came From Dallas show will be the awarding of the prestigious Dallas Producers Association Film Pioneer Award. This time around, two extraordinary Texas filmmakers, Don Stokes and Dennis Bishop will be honored with the award.
