What we're about

The Dallas Film Crew is a united front for the development of film and expansion of opportunities for filmmakers in the Dallas community.

We believe film is not something we do, film is a lifestyle. We believe that every great film begins with a great story and collaboration is the precursor to success. Dallas Film Crew is not a production company, it is a creative community of producers, filmmakers, and artists. The Dallas Film Crew envisions collaboration between filmmakers, supports our community through workshops and competitions, and organizes productions by combining our collective talent. We strive to make DFW synonymous with film through feature-quality motion pictures, talented visionaries, and the development of stories worth telling.

Table Read & Coffee - Dallas Screenwriting Crew

Crossroads Theatre

Everyone is welcome script or no script. Actors, writers, and all filmmakers. Join us to a table read of your own scripts! Bring 10 Pages of any script in the hollywood standard format, short or feature and we will read, critique, and analyze our scripts through the "Brain Trust" method which is inspired from Pixar's technique of critiquing screenplays! Please bring 7-10 copies of your script! Printing front and back is fine to save paper. Please also upload it to a spot where you can share a link for those who can read from their electronic device. We will only read 10 pages, Dallas Filmmaker Alliance Members get their script read first, followed by the person next in line. We will have a sign in sheet. If we do not get to your script, do not worry, your place in line stays for our next Table Read. We will have coffee, cream, sugar, and cups. Become a monthly member or donate at www.filmindallas.org See you there! #Filmindallas
