Crossroads of Texas Film And Music Festival

400 South Grand Avenue
Waxahachie, TX 75165

About Us:

Filmmaking began here with Bonnie and Clyde, scripted by Waxahachie native Robert Benton, which was filmed in 1967. It reached its pinnacle in the early 1980’s when Benton returned to his former hometown to write and direct the Oscar-winning feature Places in the Heart, starring Sally Field.

Two other Oscar-winners, Tender Mercies, starring Robert Duvall and Tess Harper, and The Trip to Bountiful, were also shot principally in Waxahachie at that time.

The Crossroads of Texas Film and Music Festival is a tribute event that not only celebrates Waxahachie-made films, but also salutes the best of Texas-made music and films. Join us for four days of fun, films, food, music and more!
