Dallas International Film Festival

2021 DIFF - Weekend Festival October 8-10

Dallas International Film Festival

DIFF 2021 is Back and Better!

Known for being one of the most filmmaker-friendly film festivals in the world, the Dallas International Film Festival is back in-person for the first time since 2019. The three-day festival will take place October 8 – 10 inside Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – Cedars located at 1005 Botham Jean Blvd, Dallas, TX 75215.

This DIFF looks a bit different as a special weekend festival when Dallas and the world come together to celebrate film—and filmmakers. 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.

All DIFF staff and volunteers and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema employees will wear masks. DIFF 2021 will follow Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Covid Safety Protocols.
