In an alternate universe, the Oak Cliff Film Festival would be kicking off this evening with a slate of fabulous movies from some truly creative people.
Alas, none of us are too eager to be muffin-top-to-muffin-top with a stranger in the theater seat next to us. Luckily, the show will go on in a format we’ve all gotten very used to: online.
Tonight, NOT The Oak Cliff Film Festival presents a two-hour streaming event with plenty to keep you entertained.
The lineup includes Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe’s 2015 short film, Greener Grass; Dustin Guy Defa’s 2014 short film, Person to Person; Sarah Adina Smith‘s short film, The Sirens; and Brett Whitcomb and Bradford Thomason’s 2019 documentary short, Lost Weekend. That’s all followed by a post-screening Q&A moderated by filmmaker David Lowery.
The event is free and all you have to do is RSVP. Of course, donations will be most welcome. Plus, a portion of proceeds will go to Mothers Against Police Brutality. You can also purchase office NOT The Oak Cliff Film Festival T-shirts to help raised funds.
So, you know the drill at this point. Perch yourself on the sofa, unbutton your pants (if you’re even wearing any) and flip open the laptop for a two-hour distraction from the rest of the world.
Now where did we put that recipe for homemade Junior Mints. So sick of banana bread.
