3rd Annual Marfa Film Festival
The Third Annual Marfa Film Festival will be held May 5 - May 9, 2010, screening over 50 features, shorts and experimental works. Because Marfa's wide-open plain, distant mountains and incomparably starry sky are part of the draw, Marfa Film Festival will have outdoor screenings during the festival. Indoor screenings will be anchored at the state-of-the-art Goode-Crowley theater. Festival headquarters will be at the famous Paisano Hotel (where James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor lived during the filming of "Giant"). We are in the high desert where the weather may get cold at night. Please check the conditions on your favorite weather site, and don't forget warm clothing and sunscreen.
