DIFF 2024 is a global adventure that features premiere screenings, eye-opening documentaries, intriguing short films, filmmaker panels, and nightly red carpets — plus events, activations and hubs where filmmakers, screenwriters, film industry leaders, celebrities, sponsors, and audiences can all gather to enjoy and discuss film.

The Dallas International Film Festival is a special time when Dallas and the world come together to celebrate the art of film and filmmakers. Since 2006, the Festival has become the place for storytellers and audiences to connect and experience film as a community. In pursuing our mission, we are committed to:

  • Providing accessible, inclusive, immersive, educational, and entertaining film experiences for all people
  • Championing and celebrating diverse, emerging and underrepresented voices through curation of the broadest range of expression through film
  • Fostering human connection and greater appreciation for our common humanity and our rich diversity through the shared experience of film
