Welcome! Our aim is to showcase the independent film scene in Dallas, focusing primarily on the traditional theatrical experience, while also drawing attention to movies screening via home and mobile video platforms.

Film Critic Emeritus
Steve Norwood is a poet, writer and cineaste living in the Dallas area. He is also the Senior Programmer for the Asian Film Festival of Dallas (or AFFD, on both Facebook and Twitter, and at www.affd.org).
Steve served as lead reviewer and covered film festivals as well as weekly DVD releases for Dallas Film Now from the site’s inception until his appointment as Editor-in-Chief and Head Writer at Red Carpet Crash in August 2010. He is sorely missed.
