Dallas VideoFest Features Premiere of Cheryl Allison’s HONK, COVID Tale of a Goose
Dallas VideoFest announces its transition into the future. This year, 2022 kicks off DVF’s Curated Film Series with the world premiere of the documentary, HONK, a film by DVF alumni, Cheryl Allison, screens Wednesday, March 2nd, at 7:30 pm at Angelika Film Center – Dallas, 5321 E Mockingbird Ln. in Mockingbird Station.
Dumped and alone at a city park, Honk spent his days dodging cars, begging for food and looking for friends. When Cheryl Allison unexpectedly crossed Honk’s path in March 2020, what followed was a story in which fairy tales are made.
“This is a film for the moment. This is a film that is meant for families and can spark conversations including wildlife around us, picking up after ourselves and others outside, and helping our communities. This film could not have come to us at a more perfect time especially after the turmoil that the world has seen because of the pandemic. With this documentary, created by a filmmaker who aims to spread light on the critical issues, Dallas VideoFest is able to focus on the films that are important as it begins our new path,” says Bart Weiss, founder and artistic director of Dallas VideoFest.
HONK documentary was made possible through a generous grant from the Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center. Funded by Milfred and Patricia Hammerbacher.
