VideoFest Celebrates 25th anniversary :: Sept. 27-30, 2012


The Video Association of Dallas has announced that the 25th anniversary of its VideoFest will be Sept. 27-30, 2012 at its original home, the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood St. in downtown Dallas. Call 214-428-8700 for information or visit www.videofest.org. VideoFest is now the oldest and largest video festival in the United States, and continues to garner critical and popular acclaim. Merging art and technology since 1986, 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 2.0 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.
