It’s almost time for Porky Pig, but not quite: There’s one last Dallas Medianale event for your viewing pleasure. Carolyn Sortor has put together a closing program of seated screenings called “Existential Virtuality” for the experimental film festival and it starts at 5:45 p.m. Saturday at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary (3120 McKinney Ave.). The evening will begin with a compilation screening, “Death, Desire + Commerce in 5-D,” with a longer, 30-minute screening of My Barbarian following at 7:15 p.m. The compilation will repeat at 8:15 p.m., so you’re set if you can’t make it there early. There’s also an after party to look forward to, the location of which will be disclosed at the event. Show up to say goodbye — for now — to one of the coolest things to happen in Dallas in recent memory. And don’t be shy if this is your first Medianale event; at the very least it will give you a taste of what to expect from the Video Association of Dallas when they bring back Medianale and offer other awesome programming in the future. Admission is free, but make sure to RSVP to guarantee your spot. More info at
