diff2015            We know that you can’t make it to every film on your list, every red carpet or every Festival event – so we do it for you at DallasFilm.org, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

At DallasFilm.org, you’ll find interviews with DIFF filmmakers shot in the DIFF studios, photo galleries, and DIFF tips and tidbits on the blog.

On our social pages, you’ll find live photos, commentary, videos and more from our events – and not just from us, but from your fellow film lovers, too.

Share your thoughts on the Festival to our official hashtag #DIFF2015 and join the excitement!

Get ready for the biggest movie event of the year! We’ve released our full slate of films, and you can see them all on our online Festival Guide.

With more than 165 films from 32 countries, we don’t have the space to mention them all here. But we’re confident that you will find many movies to love and explore amongst our narrative features, documentaries and short films.

We can’t resist passing along a few highlights though:

The German Spotlight, which puts a spotlight on classic and new films from that country’s talented filmmakers

Free Panel Discussions and Featured Q&As that cover filmmaking topics and celebrate DIFF filmmakers.

Free screenings of classics like RAGING BULL, and family-friendly films like PEE WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE,

Gala Screenings, Awards Presentations, and, of course, all the films in our competitions and showcases.
