MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Huzzah! At RDFF we are excited about movies! We strive to educate, promote, and entertain through independent films. We love networking and parties!


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Red Dirt International Film Festival is where film goes to have fun. We love movies and a good time. We are pleased to showcase films and screenplays* of many genres.

During its 3-day run March 22-24, 2018, we will feature many films, from full-length movies and documentaries, and short films from filmmakers both local and worldwide. In the past we have featured films from all seven continents, including Antarctica! Red Dirt was formed to bring more inspiration, culture, and entertainment to central Oklahoma, as well as to enliven people of all ages through the united power of the film medium.

In addition to films we have parties each evening, workshops, panels, Q&A's, live music, networking events and whatever else our creative minds create year-to-year!

The fest is held in the student union on the Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater, Oklahoma. It is the largest student union in the world and we are thrilled to have use of the theater there! Campus is gorgeous and has restaurants and the Atherton Hotel (our host hotel) connected to the student union so you can walk right from your hotel to the theater!

Stillwater is the launchpad for a number of other amazing things such as Eskimo Joe's restaurant, The All-American Rejects, Garth Brooks, Red Dirt Music, Oklahoma State University, and actors such as James Marsden, and Gary Busey.

We thank YOU for your submissions and look forward to having you as part of our festival!
