About the Oak Cliff Film Festival

“Simply put, among America’s very best small film festivals.”

In its 11th year, the Oak Cliff Film Festival has established itself as a significant city-wide event, featuring the best of Oak Cliff’s theatre and art venues, restaurants, bars, and small businesses. OCFF showcases brave and independent filmmaking of all stripes in an atmosphere that encourages and fosters filmmaking in Dallas and beyond.
The Oak Cliff Film Festival was established in 2011 as a regional film festival in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas. The festival is a program of the Oak Cliff Film Society. The Oak Cliff Film Society is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to discovering independent and archival films and sharing them with new audiences via screenings and educational programs. OCFS is committed to cultivating the film community in and promoting the Dallas neighborhood of Oak Cliff by inspiring filmmakers, audiences and artists.
