Now in its 30th season, the independent film series is reaching more audiences than ever

DALLAS/FORT WORTH KERA’s acclaimed television program, Frame of Mind, is returning this fall. Now in its 30th year on the air, the program features the best independent film and video from Texas-based filmmakers. In a first for the program, this year the locally produced series will be shared with PBS member stations across Texas, meaning more audiences than ever will have access to stories and films that make our state so unique.

“For almost three decades, Frame of Mind has delivered distinct Texas stories into the homes of North Texas from very talented Texas filmmakers,” says Bill Young, Vice President of Television Programming at KERA. “Several films in this year’s lineup speak to our present and future by giving a deep understanding into our past. We are extremely excited to be able to share this year’s series with a statewide audience throughout Texas.”

Frame of Mind has grown into a multi-episode TV series, presented by KERA’s Art&Seek and produced by Bart Weiss, co-founder of Dallas VideoFest and the Video Association of Dallas. The 30th season will air Thursdays at 10pm starting October 6 through November 24.

This season will showcase a diverse range of Texas filmmakers as they explore various aspects of our rich Texan culture. The films highlight the joys of connecting with others, the distinctiveness of our vibrant heritage and provide viewers with a deeper understanding of the shared bonds and history of our state.

“For 30 years, we have been showing the films of Texas filmmakers on Frame of Mind here in North Texas. We have shown the stories of joy, sorrow and the unique spirit of Texas, but only if you were in the footprint of KERA’s signal,” says Bart Weiss. “Now, the diverse stories of Texans, told by a diverse group of independent filmmakers, can be seen statewide. The films on Frame of Mind take us deeper into the stories of our neighbors, all done with unique styles and a Texas flair. Watch, and change your frame of mind.”
