Durango Film Festival

The juried 9-day festival presents independent narrative feature films, documentaries, animated films, shorts, experimental, and new media works. In addition, the festival offers educational salons, VIP panels, and filmmaker discussions on filmmaking and film as an art form, and host a variety of parties and receptions. On the last Saturday of the festival the Award Winners will be announced, and receive encore screenings on Sunday to close the festival. Located in southwest Colorado, Durango is a prime vacation destination. In winter, the town acts as the gateway to skiing at nearby Purgatory Ski Area at Durango Mountain Resort. The late-winter climate is mild, and the town offers amenities including luxury hotels, historic architecture, fine dining, world-renowned art galleries, and a host of other attractions. The 3rd Annual Durango Film Festival, which took place this past March, offered some of the finest independent films, including several world premieres. The Award Winners demonstrated the highest production values while embodying the passion and distinctive voices that are found only in independent film. Other highlights of the festival event are noted in our press releases on this site. The Durango Film Festival call for entries for the 2004 event will begin August 1, 2003. Submission deadline will be December 1, 2003. We invite submissions of narrative, documentary, animated, experimental features and shorts, and childrens films shot on film and video.
