by Gila Espinoza 20 Sep 2017 8:31 AM

For their 30th anniversary festival, the Dallas VideoFest will be split into two different presentations. DocuFest will feature dozens of documentaries and shorts. It will run four days, October 5-8, 2017, on one screen at one theater, Studio Movie Grill on Northwest Hwy. According to VideoFest artistic director, Bart Weiss, going from 15o to a couple of dozen screenings meant saying no to a lot of good films but that assures that the highest quality films will be presented at this year’s festival.
