About OCFF

In our third year and gaining momentum

The third annual Oak Cliff Film Festival will take place at the historic Texas Theatre, the Kessler Theater, the Bishop Arts Theater, and other venues in North Oak Cliff, June 19-22nd, 2014.

Led by the Aviation Cinemas team, who took over operations at the Texas Theatre in December of 2010, and backed by the 501 3(c) Oak Cliff Foundation, the Oak Cliff Film Festival will feature the very best of Oak Cliff’s theater venues, highlight the popular restaurants and bars of the area, and seek to showcase the best of independent and brave filmmaking of all stripes from Oak Cliff, Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth, and Austin, as well as the rest of the country and the world.

This year the Festival is celebrating the legacy of Eadweard Muybridge, the pioneering photographer. Muybridge’s photographic innovations in pursuit of the answer to questions about animal motion, including the zoopraxiscope, led to the development of the first motion pictures. OCFF hopes to highlight the craft, as well as the artistry, of film, honoring the tradition of work going back to Muybridge.
