Houston is the fourth largest city in U.S.A. that was wrecked by Hurricane Harvey, right before our 2017 edition. However, Houstonians showed an incredible resilience and grit, as private citizens put on the cape of rescuers and took on the task to save lives. Neighbors turned into families and strangers became angels. As we reeled from the effects of Harvey, we realized, even though broken, Houston is beautiful and strong. Our 2017 festival was like no other. We showed films at venues like Alamo Drafthouse and the newly opened Match Theatre. We had record audience cheering for and supporting the independent spirit of artists. It only motivated us more.
The festival will be held on October 16 - 19, 2019 with its creative hub at Next Actor Studio, Houston.
