Our video, The Stepping Up and Going Under Method, will be showing in the closing night of the 20th Annual Dallas Video Festival tomorrow, Saturday, Aug. 4 at 8:45 at the Dallas Theater Center. It looks like a great line-up: we are just three shorts after a Miranda July.
Here is the schedule for tomorrow, which includes our film at 8:45pm. Incidentally, tonight they’re showing The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, an excellent film that a couple of our new Greek friends introduced us to last weekend. Brilliant, funny and philosophical, the PGTC will make you think of Hitchcock in a whole new light. One snippet: the most frightening thing in cinema is not death, but the inanimate undead object, or that which cannot die, yet does not live.
You can buy tickets to the festival here, but if you’re not able to make it to the screening, the ever-innovative DVF is simultaneously hosting the film festival on Second Life for one week in conjunction with the live events. Here’s what you need to know and here’s where you need to go.
The Dallas Video Festival on SECOND LIFE: 7/30 – 8/5
Over the past 20 years the Dallas Video Festival has embraced the way technology can not only revolutionize artistic expression but can also enrich the human experience through unprecedented access to content, ideas and community. Join us as we yet again take one big step for video festivals everywhere. We are taking our festival into the metaverse of online virtual worlds. Many believe that online virtual worlds are the future of the internet. In partnership with the school of Arts and Technology at the University of Texas at Dallas we will launch a series of events in the 3D online digital world, SECOND LIFE. Our events are designed to whet your appetite for another year of outstanding films, videos, shorts, features, and everything in between.
