Aurthur Penn’s 1967 film “Bonnie and Clyde” ushered in a new era in American film.

It is considered one of the first films in the New Hollywood genre, which “broke through the established conventions of the studio system and slapped it with a jolt of energy, sexuality, realism and artistry that it had desperately needed,” says a media release from the Oak Cliff Film Festival.

The 2016 festival, June 16-19, is inspired by New Hollywood.

The festival is accepting film submissions through April 22. And the festival is again offering the Oak Cliff Film Festival Filmmakers grant. Find all the details here.
