The O'Connor & Hewitt Foundation, Film Exchange, and The David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists are thrilled to have the opportunity to present the ninth annual Victoria TX Independent Film Festival, October 22 to November 1, virtually for the first time in our 9 year history. This year we had to adapt to the new landscape that Covid has presented us with. It has been an honor presenting the Victoria community with passionate work being done in independent cinema.
Moviemaker Magazine ranked VTXIFF among the top 25 in its list of 50 fests worth the submission fee in 2015 (and 2013). Rutger Hauer, legendary actor and director of his own film festival, visited VTXIFF and declared, “This is where good shit happens.” VTXIFF is the rare film festival run by passionate filmmakers who know how to deliver on the promise of what that experience should be for other filmmakers… like coming home.
Past juror and alum, Lisa Martin describes the festival as, "a rare film festival that understands that filmmakers need far more from the festival experience than Q&As and networking. VTXIFF is that rare community that celebrates, champions, and inspires artists of all kinds… especially filmmakers".
Victoria TX Independent Film Festival (VTXIFF) is as much about the magic that happens when artists of all kinds bond, influence one another and share community as it is about film. Each year visiting filmmakers not only screened their own films, they collaborated on new films, have started their own festivals or returned to Victoria to shoot their next film!
The Victoria TX Independent Film Festival proudly accepts entries on FilmFreeway, the world's #1 way to enter film festivals and creative contests.
