Dallas Indie Festival combines film, art, music and food for a four-day multi-genre festival June 19-22, 2014 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 Thursday June 19th and will run through the duration of the festival in the Bath House Cultural Center Theater. Film standouts include Left Over by Jim Kuenzer about a chef in search of a restaurant. Instead of saving money and finding investors, Chef John Baker decides to take the “easy” route and win a cooking reality show.
25,000 Miles to Glory by Rhett Grametbauer is 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.
***On Saturday June 21 and Sunday, June 22 (noon – 7:00 p.m.), over 50 different types of artists ranging from jewelry, painting, mixed media and sculpture, musicians and food trucks will be set-up against the beautiful White Rock Lake shoreline.
Featured artists include Roger Beveal who has been called the Andy Warhol of the digital age whose larger than life iPhone mixes both media as well as creative interpretation and Sarah Manning from Dallas who layers acrylic paint and mixed media. Folk singer Vanessa Peters has played over 1,000 shows in 11 countries and has received accolades from abroad as well as her home town of Dallas and joins other musical talents including Catamaran, Dynamite, Kaela Sinclair, Lauren Grant, Lazy Summer and Sarah Sellers throughout the weekend.
