Since 2007 the Marfa Film Festival has attracted talented filmmakers, international press, industry professionals, and attendees from around the world to a remote corner of far west Texas. Over 5 days we screen a diverse mix of features, shorts, music videos, and experimental works, including a full afternoon schedule followed each evening by outdoor classics screenings in a starlit desert, with special happenings and spaces.

Our program celebrates innovation and excellence in filmmaking through meticulous curation and fostering a relaxed social space where up-and-coming filmmakers and adventurous cinephiles mix with film veterans and living legends in a captivatingly scenic, culturally rich environment. We show films one-at-a-time, so attendees can enjoy the entire program with spare hours to relax and socialize in that unhurried “sun-drenched desert town at the end of the world” Marfa kind of way.

Filmmakers, flims, and musical talents featured at MFF have gone on to win Oscars, Emmys and Grammys. Our program features works of promising newcomers, exceptional talents, and celebrated masters, including world premieres and overlooked classics.


The remote landscape surrounding Marfa has witnessed a fascinating history of art and film which continues to unfold in. Festival attendees enjoy an intimate get-away immersed in the unique culture, spectacular scenery, and clear air of the Marfa plateau.

We hope you will join us

“The best little fest I’ve ever attended”

– Randall Roberts, LA Weekly


Passes get you into all screenings, plus a commemorative badge, festival tote and program guidebook.


• Discounted Passes and Tickets available for Tri-County residents (available on-site during the fest with a local photo ID or utility bill)



We accept Narratives, Documentaries, Animated Films, Music Videos, Trailers / Teasers, Experimental Works, and Screenplays of any genre, addressing any topic. Films must screen within defined runtimes, detailed in our entry guidelines.

Selecting a film for the Marfa Film Festival program is the only formal award we bestow. MFF doesn’t choose ‘best-of’ or organize selected films into competitive hierarchies. We’ve noticed eschewing competitiveness seems to foster a refreshingly unguarded social atmosphere where creative people with a diversity of experiences and reputations can meet to discover new friendships and collaborations naturally. We treat visiting filmmakers with friendly hospitality including a luxuriant filmmakers only dinner and other special happenings.


Traveling to the Marfa Film Festival is an adventure in itself. Located in one of the most remote corners of the United States, you can arrive here by automobile, train, and private airplane. For specific information about how to make your way to Marfa click here.

Alpine is our neighboring city and has many great attractions and far more accommodation than Marfa ,we highly recommend booking there if accommodations in Marfa become scarce. Also explore and enjoy the whole region.
