Dixon teaches courses in film history, theory and criticism at UNL from the undergraduate to the graduate levels, as well as advising students. During the 1960s he worked as an experimental filmmaker in New York, then moved to Los Angeles and London in the late 60s and early 70s to work within the film industry. He left Hollywood in 1976 after a career as a post-production supervisor to pursue a career in academe. Most recently, on April 11-12, 2003, he was honored with a retrospective of his films at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and his films were acquired for the permanent collection of the Museum, in both print and original format. Dixon received his PhD in English from Rutgers University in 1982, and is the author or editor of numerous books, including, most recently, Visions of the Apocalypse: Spectacles of Destruction in American Cinema (Wallflower Press, 2003), Straight: Constructions of Heterosexuality in the Cinema (State University of New York Press, 2003), and Experimental Cinema: The Film Reader (Routledge).
