Marfa, Texas – USA
June 26 to 30, 2013
March 11, 2013 – Regular Deadline
The Marfa Film Festival, set in gorgeous Texas, has become a beacon for amazing filmmakers, industry, and press from around the world.
As a non-competitive film festival, the MMF Marfa Film Festival offers no first place prizes and selects no winners, instead offering selected films a remarkable screening experience and the opportunity to forge connections with audiences and artists in a variety of disciplines. Festival alumni have gone on to earn numerous awards including Oscars, Emmys, and top honors at festivals around the world. In previous years, MFF has honored Dennis Hopper, Larry McMurtry, Lou Reed, and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. At MFF, films are screened one-at-a-time, ensuring each selected participant benefits from the full attention he or she deserves.
They accept Narratives, Documentaries, Animated Films, and Music Videos of any genre, addressing any topic. Films must screen within defined runtimes, detailed below. Marfa Film Festival places no restriction on an entry’s production date or premier status. We also welcome abandoned classics from decades past and never before seen indies.
Thanks to MFF’s remote location and low pollution, visitors are treated to screening experiences they simply won’t find anywhere else, including night-time cinema celebrations under a blanket of stars thicker than most attendees have ever seen. At its core, MFF represents a blend of cowboy, auteur, and home-grown artistic cultures that continues to blaze its own trail along the festival landscape. The result is a unique kind of magic that pulls visitors back again and again.
