Saturday, Oct. 21 – The Heart Beats Outside: An Evening of Immersive Environmentalism
The second night of the festival is designed to tantalize all the senses. At the beautifully restored Arts Mission Oak Cliff in the heart of historic Winnetka Heights, guests will enjoy an evening of environmental film, food, music and storytelling. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with a curated menu from Dive Coastal Cuisine presented as guests stroll the garden adjacent to the former church. Beautiful projection mapping from Dallas-based Lightware Labs will transport North Texans to far-off land and waterscapes, followed by a thoughtful short film block and conversation centered around the powerful ways in which nature communicates with us. Featured shorts include Walking on Clouds, Soundscape, Light Beams for Helena and Tempo II: Movement in Jungle. The evening will close with extraordinary music performances from the Nick Rothouse Trio and world-renowned cellist and multi-instrumentalist Ben Sollee.
