Pop culture has groomed a generation that's awestruck with music videos. From Total Request Live hosted by Carson Daly to the top morning video block on VH1, MTV and/or Fuse that you listened to while you got ready for class, we were all trained to associate music with gorgeous cinema. The symphony has caught on to this generational gap and the Dallas Chamber Symphony's current season is closing out their second annual Sight of Sound International Film Competition with similar stimuli. This film competition has drawn in high-caliber entries from respected film institutions across the nation with the promise of a $500 Audience Favorite Award (selected by audience members via text), as well as a $500 Best Picture Award, to be determined by the competition’s professional jury panel. Come check out two exemplary North Texas entries at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Dallas City Performance Hall (2520 Flora St.) for the classiest version of TRL that you'll ever encounter. Tickets range from $19-$44. Visit dallasculture.org for more.
