Pegasus Film Festival Celebrates Young Filmmakers, May 30 in Dallas

The 7th annual Pegasus Film Festival will take place in person at the Angelika Theatre in Dallas on May 30.

North Texas is a haven for youth passionate about filmmaking. However, despite the increasing accessibility to filmography equipment and tools, exposure often stands between artists, and the support and recognition they deserve.

The Pegasus Film Festival was created in 2015 by Dallas educator and artist Niloo Jalilvand with these dreamers in mind. Her team seeks to close the gap by giving filmmakers the chance to present their art to both an audience and a panel of judges. Through this, they will learn invaluable lessons, make meaningful connections with industry professionals, and become familiarized with the film festival experience.

The festival provides students with paid internship positions as festival leaders with industry professionals. Students learn analytical skills and make meaningful connections with peers and industry pros while running a major film festival. For the last seven years, Pegasus Film Festival has been able to support hundreds of high school students from underserved communities.

Join a wonderful group of young filmmakers on the red carpet while seeing their flicks, Q&A sessions, the awards celebration and an art sale.
