Quin Mathews

Director/Producer - City of Hate: Dallas and the Assassination
Filmmaker, journalist and broadcaster Quin Mathews has devoted his life to
telling stories. He became a news anchor at age 22, when he was still a college 
student, and remained in journalism for 21 years. In 1993 he left WFAA-TV in 
Dallas to devote full time to Quin Mathews Films, telling stories through 
television, film and radio about business, culture and the arts.

Quin has shot documentaries around the world on subjects like emerging artists 
in China, folk churches in Mexico and solar power in Africa. His films about art 
have shown in major museums in the United States, Asia and Europe. 

In 1988, with radio partner Sharon Benge, he co-founded the program “Art 
Matters,” which recently concluded its 25-year run on WRR. While on the air, the 
show aired more than 2,500 interviews with artists, musicians, and other people 
across the world who have shaped our culture.

Honors include the Legend Award from the Dallas Contemporary and the Lifetime 
Achievement Award from the Business Council for the Arts.

He has, over the years, reported on the legacy of the Kennedy assassination on 
air and for the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas through the perspective of one of the 
thousands of people who came out to greet the president on November 22, 1963.
