Postmarks September 17, 2007
As a Cinematexas board member from 1996 through 2005 and the administrator of the Department of Radio-Television-Film at UT, I found it supremely ironic that the Chronicle finally ran its first and only cover story about Cinematexas – to report on its demise [“The Advance's Retreat,” Screens, Sept. 14]..."

The ins and outs of the Cinematexas 2002 International Short Film Festival
Screens Story September 13, 2002, by Kimberley Jones
"...Nestled in the back of Cinematexas' 2002 program book, the fest directors thank German filmmaker Werner Herzog (in attendance this year) for "joining our little uprising." In an interview with Chronicle writer Marc Savlov (below), Herzog calls himself a "soldier of cinema." Some of the programs that make up Cinematexas' nine days of nonstop short cinema boast names like "Discipline and Punish" and "He Who Hits First, Hits Twice." Mighty truculent bunch, this one...."

Cinematexas' Political Arm
Film festival's radical approach extends to politics, too.
News Story September 16, 2005, by Wells Dunbar
"...Near impossible to marshal into discrete categories, the corpus of the Cinematexas film festival seeks to inform and agitate; however, the Parallax View arm of Cinematexas shares with its mother festival a distrust of conventional filmmaking forms and procedures as it seeks to deconstruct "the political economy of images." Named after a Vietnam-weary, Watergate-informed thriller-politic from 1974, Parallax View mines a similar mood, sharing similar subjects: mainly, dispatches from America's imperialist folly in Vietnam, echoing chillingly our current situation in Iraq, along with documents of revolutionary Latin American action...."
The Eyes of CinemaTexas
A brief reminiscence
Screens Story October 17, 2003, by Louis Black
"...A significant number of the small group that started The Austin Chronicle were film graduate students, most of whom had never had a journalism course (resist the obvious jokes). We had become friends working for CinemaTexas, a graduate-student-run film society that programmed films to complement the courses being offered by the Radio-Television-Film department during the semester (this before video was consumer accessible)..."

An Ambitious Student Film Festival
Screens Story September 27, 1996

chance to see where we're coming from and where we're going; from what roots
