North Texas’ Largest
Latino Film Festival
The Vistas Film Festival shows great Latino films year-round. Each fall, Vistas hosts a four-day festival at the Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station in Dallas, attracting directors, producers and stars from around the globe. Thousands of film lovers from across North Texas attend the festival to watch movies, have coffee with the filmmakers and to mingle at the after-parties. We invite you to attend the 10th Annual Vistas Film Festival from September 17-20, 2009 at the Angelika Film Center.

The Vistas Film Festival brings great cinematic works by or about Latinos to North Texas. Since 1999, Vistas has given movie-lovers a rare, yet wonderful, opportunity to see exceptional motion pictures from places as remote as the Andes Mountains or as familiar as the streets of San Antonio. Sadly, most of the 300-plus films that Vistas has shown have never returned to Dallas/Fort Worth or other theaters in the United States.

The films shown at Vistas reflect the rich diversity of Latino cultures. We seek to include all genres from every country in Latin America, the Caribbean and Spain. Filmmakers of all cultural backgrounds pleasantly surprise us with films that transcend geographic and cultural boundaries. The wide-ranging topics addressed in the films—whether they are humorous or heavy—reflect the boundless creativity of both emerging and experienced filmmakers. Collectively, they capture the spirit of the 2009 Vistas Film Festival: Old Traditions. New Stories.
