The 14th annual Dallas International Film Festival powered by Capital One, hosted by Dallas Film, doesn’t just show films; it showcases and celebrates all types of content. The interaction between story tellers, audiences and the Dallas community is what we strive to develop from opening to closing and everything in between.
DIFF2020 is a global adventure that boasts premiere screenings, nightly red carpets, daring documentaries, eye-opening short films, exciting television content, anew focus on environmental film-making, music documentaries, nightly parties, live music performances, filmmaker panels, award presentations, and an enhanced filmmaker hospitality program that includes city tours and more.
The festival completed a successful 2019 run with over 130 filmmakers attending our Texas-sized film party that 124 films screened from 24 countries and an attendance of over 15,000.
We invite you to add your voice to the conversation. At DIFF, filmmakers are invited to the festival to participate in a variety of programs, Q&A sessions and a series of panel discussions. Dallas area high schools and universities host master classes where filmmakers have the opportunity to discuss their work and careers with a new generation of content creators.
