Festival Overview

The purpose of the West Texas Film Festival is to screen diverse films from both directors and producers that would not normally be featured in West Texas as well as regional media makers. We seek short films, documentaries, features, animation and student films as well as screenplays from all over the world that have the pioneer spirit of filmmaking. We are a registered nonprofit organization in the State of Texas.


The festival was started by a grant in 2016 from Odessa Arts. The Education Day brings in over 100 high school students in the Permian Basin for workshops on acting, screenwriting, directing and producing. This is the third year of the festival.

The 2018 WTXFF wil feature the following showcases:

Tales of Texas (Nov 15th)
Educational Day (Nov 21st)
WorldView (November 22nd)
Artpocalypse (November 23rd)

If you have films about Texas, zombies, the post-apocalypse or international films with English subtitles, please submit them.

Please do not contact us about fee waivers. We are a small, grant funded festival that relies on submission fees.
