From a documentary about former Gov. Ann Richards to a program of experimental video art, Dallas VideoFest casts its net wide tonight at the Dallas Museum of Art. It’s that kind of range that’s made the 25-year-old festival a cornerstone of the North Texas film scene:
If you’ve got a few minutes, we have saucy puppets (Michael Robinson), an artist in a box (Erica Felicella), the power of video (Bart Weiss), the power of art in West Dallas (Bernardo Diaz), and a beautiful poem and photo journey to the land of the Gullah people (David Herman, Jr.).
Artists rarely get a bigger canvas than this. The Dallas VideoFest marks its 25th anniversary Wednesday with videos – abstract, oddball, haunting — displayed on the Omni Hotel, visible for miles. Jerome Weeks rode along the search for the best viewing spot.
A chocolatier, a puppeteer, choreographer Bruce Wood, novelist Matt Bondurant (Lawless), the guy behind the move for affordable housing for area artists – and more. And they’re all speaking and performing at the new City Performance Hall Wednesday evening.
As Dallas VideoFest gears up for its 25th Anniversary, we celebrate with a special feature. Bart Weiss tells all about it.
