“There is lots of talk today about alternative facts and political narratives. The line between fact and fiction in life and in cinema is blurring,” stated Bart Weiss, founder and artistic director of Dallas VideoFest, in a press release. “Filmmakers are making TV; TV shows become feature films. Who can even define what the idea of television is anymore with networks along with the gamut of streaming services?

“DVF30’s AltFiction Fest devotes the weekend to ways of telling stories on large screens and small – film and TV and web – mixing media and mediums.” 

The narratives that make up the majority of AltFiction Fest explore this moment in time at the intersection between media and how cinema artists can create original work in this new world, the press release stated.

“Over the four days at the Angelika, a great palace of traditional cinema exhibition, AltFiction Fest features new works from local and international filmmaker telling unique stories, working the edges and sometimes the centers of this world,” Weiss stated.
