Since 1986 VideoFest has specialized in fiercely independent, imaginative, unusual, provocative and sometimes description-defying electronic media. VideoFest is a bastion of true independent media, offering viewpoints and voices and visual styles that don't always have expression in more mainstream festivals. We're a filmmaker-friendly festival whose audience is hip, sophisticated, adventurous, intelligent, and off-beat. Our audience cares more about seriously watching your film than attending parties. We offer both style AND substance.
Mission: Dallas Videofest is the major event presented by the Video Association of Dallas, which is dedicated to promoting an understanding of video as a creative medium and cultural force in our society, and to supporting and advancing the work of Texas artists working in video and the electronic arts. Through its programs and information services, the Video Association intends to educate and inform artists, students, educators, critics, video and film producers and an interested public so they may better understand, appreciate and evaluate the creative possibilities of the video medium. It will also provide a forum for the work of regional video artists, in order to stimulate excellence in their work and provide the opportunity for dialogue and critical discussion.
Company Overview: This year we want to really show Dallas what VideoFest is all about; we want to rock the boat, push buttons, and take the new advent of media to the next level. We have opened a new category that we feel expresses exactly what we wish to achieve: The Subgenre. We are looking for music videos, skating videos, and similar projects that represent counterculture and subculture. These are the underground films, the Harriet Tubman's, the Tyler Durdens, the middle fingers of cinema and television, if you will. If you have them, we want to see them, so submit them right away!
