High Desert International Film Festival

2340 East Calvada Boulevard
Pahrump, NV 89048


Mission & Objective

It is our sincere wish to provide a showcase for both veteran filmmakers and budding talent at home and abroad in a celebration of unique vision and creativity.

About The Festival

This is the eighth consecutive year of the festival. We have showcased the films of incredibly talented filmmakers from around the world. We are continuing with our initial goal of becoming an Academy Award-qualifying festival in the future to provide an opportunity for our filmmakers to gain Oscar-qualified status through the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. We wish every filmmaker a most glorious fruition of their vision. In celebration of year number eight, we are adding world music concerts, wine and art exhibits.
