The Dallas Indie Festival combines film, art, music and food for a four-day multi-genre festival at the historic Bath House Cultural Center on White Rock Lake. Designed as a vehicle for both emerging and experienced artists including filmmakers, fine artists and musicians to gain exposure to a wider audience, Dallas Indie Festival is a unique experience for artists and attendees alike.
Film screenings begin June 19 and will run through the duration of the festival. Film standouts include Left Over by Jim Kuenzer about a chef in search of a restaurant who, instead of saving money and finding investors, decides to take the “easy” route and win a cooking reality show; and 25,000 Miles to Glory by Rhett Grametbauer, the journey of two friends in a 1967 VW Bus across American roadways to visit every NFL stadium and document the human spirit through freedom, friendship and sports in America.
More than 10 films will screen repeatedly throughout the festival. For a complete schedule and to purchase tickets go to www.DallasIndieFestival.com.
On Saturday and Sunday, over 50 different types of artists ranging from jewelry, painting, mixed media and sculpture, musicians and food trucks will be set up. Featured artists include Roger Beveal, who has been called the Andy Warhol of the digital age, and Sarah Manning, who layers acrylic paint and mixed media.
Folk singer Vanessa Peters, Catamaran, Dynamite, Kaela Sinclair, Lauren Grant, Lazy Summer and Sarah Sellers will provide music throughout the weekend.
