Film is about connection. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to build a community where we can share and experience stories together. With our year-round screenings, education and training, and the largest film festival in North Texas, we bring film home.

It’s a special time when Dallas and the world come together to celebrate film-and filmmakers. Since 2006, the Dallas International Film Festival (DIFF) has become the place for storytellers and audiences to connect and experience film as a community.

Over the years we’ve contributed more than $1 million in filmmaker awards, hosted more than 2,000 filmmakers, and screened over 2,200 films from more than 50 countries.

State of the Arts
