What Filmmakers Say

"I was able to see an incredible selection of films at the Dallas International Film Festival. The programming is amazing, and they do a wonderful job hosting the filmmakers and ensuring a fantastic experience for everyone who attends. It's the kind of festival you want to go back to every year to see great movies and meet the incredible community of film lovers in Dallas that come out to support the festival."

Ben Powell, Director of BARGE

 

 

"DIFF is one of the most welcoming and filmmaker friendly festivals in the country, if not the world. With a consistently strong and diverse slate of films, committed programmers, and a devout Texas audience, DIFF has positioned itself as a world class experience not to miss."

Darius Clark Monroe, Director of EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL

 

 

Brandon Oldenburg, Co-Director of the 2012 Oscar-winning animated short, THE FANTASTIC FLYING BOOKS OF MR. MORRIS LESSMORE, and former DFS Advisory Board member“I am proud to say of all the film festivals I have attended through the years DIFF is among the classiest. DIFF puts the film makers first while keeping the tone and ambiance centered upon the love of cinema.”

Ryan Silbert, Producer of GOD OF LOVE, winner of the 2011 Oscar for Live Action Short and DIFF 2010 selection“Dallas International is unlike any regional festival. Their Artistic Director and programmers attend the top tier Festivals searching to curate the best in shorts. They take their shorts programming as seriously as the features. Every program I have been a part of has screened on one of the best projections in a theatre to sold out audiences.”

Larry Hagman and Peter Fonda at DIFF 2011“It means a lot to me. … I thought, heck, Larry Hagman’s here, and it’s Dallas? I’ve got some cowboy boots. Why not?”

Bill Paxton“The big thing for me is that it’s a showcase for new talent. It’s a venue for people to show their films, and we have a lot of great Texas filmmakers here."
