“I Am Divine” shows at 9:45 p.m. Saturday at the Bishop Arts Theater Center as part of the Oak Cliff Film Festival.

The Oak Cliff Film Festival kicks off tonight at the Texas Theatre and runs through Sunday. The official program guide was delivered with the June Advocate. The Observer posted a day-by-day festival guide; the Morning News suggests these five films; and Taco Trail suggests these nine taquerías to try between films. There is also a bicycle treasure hunt Saturday. Other events include a Small Brewery pop-up at Jefferson Tower from 7-9 p.m. Friday.

If that’s not enough, tonight, June 6, is First Thursday wine walk, from 6-9 p.m., in the Bishop Arts District.

Alongside all the movies, there is also a play running in Oak Cliff this weekend. Our neighborhood’s new theater troupe, the Davis Street Collective, presents Sarah Kane’s “4.48 Psychosis,” at 8 p.m. tonight and Friday, June 7, at Davis Foundry gallery.

The Art Conspiracy seed party, “Mounted,” starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Life in Deep Ellum. It is described as “a lodge-like, electronic animalistic mounted dream sequence that only those crazy Art Conspirators can produce.”

Safari Nights at the Dallas Zoo kicks off Saturday, June 8 and runs every Saturday through July 27, when Sara Hickman performs.

Charlie Sexton performs at the Kessler Sunday.
