There are few things that go together better than independent film and the independent spirit of a small Texas town. Which is exactly why we choose to hold the Hill Country Film Festival in Fredericksburg. And, when the film is finished, we couldn’t think of a better town to go out and explore for our patrons. Because here, you’ll find everything from museums to historical sites to shopping, great German food, vineyards and more.

Created to celebrate and showcase filmmakers from Texas and around the world, the festival began in 2010. In 2017, HCFF screened 102 independent films, both short and feature length, as well as hosted filmmaker Q&A/interviews, discussion panels, a filmmaker’s lounge and festival parties.

Thank you to the filmmakers, movie-goers, sponsors and volunteers who support the Hill Country Film Festival!
