Santa Fe Independent Film Festival

WHERE: Various Theater Locations in Santa Fe.

Top international films, American independents and the most competitive New Mexico programs in the area, commence each October for this tent-pole film event. The season's program will delight the Santa Fe audience with a first-rate run of independent films and events.


The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival began in 2009 as a fringe festival that took place in a community center. By 2011 it was the biggest event of its kind in New Mexico, screening over 100 films during a 5 day Fest.

Named one of Moviemaker Magazine's "25 Coolest General Film Festivals on the planet" and recognized nationally by IndieWire Magazine as "a young Sundance," Santa Fe Independent Film Festival has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the top annual events in New Mexico. 

Screened in five of Santa Fe's favorite independent film theaters over the course of five days, you'll experience the authentic Santa Fe and be the first to view some of the next big award-winning independent films of the year.
