The Big Deal: Oak Cliff Film Festival

by Zoee Acosta 6 Jun 2018 8:30 AM

The 7th Annual Oak Cliff Film Festival takes place at the historic Texas Theatre, Bishop Arts Theatre Center, Kessler Theater, and numerous other venues around Jefferson Boulevard and the Bishop Arts District from June 14-17, 2018.  OCFF features the very best of Oak Cliff’s historic theater venues, highlights the popular restaurants and bars of the area, and seeks to showcase and cultivate the best of independent and brave filmmaking in Texas and beyond.

From the opening night film about Joan Jett to the closing night film “Never Goin’ Back” to a showcase of an unheralded work by pioneer Penelope Spheeris, audiences will see more awe-inspiring women in the programming than ever before. In fact, they provide more perspectives and more unique voices and more singular visions across the board than in any past iteration of the festival.
