Oak Cliff Film Festival Announces 3rd Year Dates and Introduces the “Muybridge Award”

OCFF Logo 2014

 

The Oak Cliff Film Festival proudly announces the official dates of its 3rd year – taking place June 19-22 at the Texas Theatre, Kessler Theater, Bishop Arts Theatre Center, and numerous other venues around the Bishop Arts District and Jefferson Blvd. Submissions are now open through WithoutABox and the committee will be accepting films through April 26th.

This year’s logo is a still taken from the first motion picture by Eadweard Muybridge, The Horse in Motion, 1878.

In concert with this, the OCFF team is excited to unveil the “Muybridge Filmmaking Award” which will reward one filmmaker with starting funds for their next project.

Creative Director, Jason Reimer, on the name of the grant as well as choosing the theme for the Festival: “The theme for 2014 reflects a return to the most basic illusion of film. The image.” Reimer says, “Strung together images are the magic trick of film.”

“Dallas is a city that historically supports buildings, not always artists,” said OCFF co-founder, Eric Steele. “Our dream is that this filmmaking award can grow each year so that we will eventually be helping launch the careers of many young filmmakers with funds raised by the festival.”

The 2014 festival will build a bridge between photography and cinema through a host of the events and interactions that area audiences have come to expect from the OCFF team.
