Named by MovieMaker Magazine as "One of 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee", Oaxaca FilmFest offers an incredible slate of films, after-parties that forge lasting connections, and tours of gorgeous Oaxaca. Several of the festival's featured films have enjoyed commercial success and critical acclaim, including A Lonely Place for Dying, Lemon, Morterm, and La Pantera Negra -- and the festival's "Pitch It" platform allows screenwriters to sell their wares to industry executives in the Americas and beyond. It's all proof that talented storytellers don't have to go to Hollywood to hit it big.
In coordination with its more traditional festival offerings, Oaxaca FilmFest includes a five-day training program uniquely designed to enhance the self-distribution skills of festival attendees. Additionally, in partnership with NUFlick, the festival offers participating filmmakers a video-on-demand channel through which to get their projects noticed. From top to bottom, Oaxaca FilmFest puts the power of film distribution in the hands of the creative forces behind the cinema audiences enjoy.
