The 24 Hour Video Race in partnership Pegasus Film Festival with is a fun filmmaking competition in which teams of video makers have 24 hours to write, shoot, edit and score an original short film. Big changes in 2019!

The 2019 24-Hour Video Race will begin in Dallas, TX, Friday on August 23rd. The objective is to complete a digital film, within 24 hours by following the rules! The rules are simple and all teams will obtain the final “five” elements during the kick-off meeting. The elements include theme, prop, and line of dialogue

The race concludes 24 hours later with a mad dash to the finish line back at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. Teams will send their films on google drive or through Dropbox.

All of the films that make it by the 8 PM deadline will be screened at the Angelika and compete for awards and bragging rights. Depending on how many teams survive we will screen the films and announce the winner.

CatFest – August 22nd @Texas Theatre

This year’s Dallas VideoFest’s CatFest (yes, we are back to #DVFCatFest; dogs will make guest appearances though) will be curated by the annual NY Cat Film Festival™, a philanthropic celebration through film of humankind’s relationship with the mysterious felines who share (and some say: “rule”) our world. After a New York City premiere every December with two new programs of short films, the festival travels to dozens of cities nationwide, benefitting a local animal welfare group that works on behalf of kitty cats. Dallas Pets Alive! will be our beneficiary with 10% of box office going to benefit their work on behalf of cats and dogs in need of fostering and adopting in Dallas.
