This is where raw talent meets raw beauty. The Hill Country Film Festival is a four day independent film festival in the heart of the Hill Country, Fredericksburg, Texas. Created to celebrate and showcase filmmakers from Texas and around the world, the festival began in 2010. HCFF screens independent films, both short and feature length, hosts filmmaker Q&A/interviews, discussion panels, a filmmaker's lounge and festival parties. Film festivals are created for various reasons... the Hill Country Film Festival was created out of love of the entire film festival experience! A film festival involves the screening of entries, educational programs and social gatherings that support new and often unknown films, while getting filmmakers and their fans together. Festivals are held all around the world. Some festivals are even theme specific, for example: a horror film festival, documentary film festival or an animation film festival. Others play a variety of films, ranging from shorts to features, comedies to dramas, and docs to cartoons. How often do you have the opportunity to talk to a director about his process or meet an actress from the short you just watched? But film festivals are more than just film screenings, as a participant, you’ll also attend parties, and sit in on panel discussions with industry professionals. This is an interactive event that is entertaining, as well as thought provoking and educational! Join us won't you? In the CELEBRATION of FILM!

Hill Country Film Festival in Fredericksburg
There are few things that go together better than independent film and the independent spirit of a small Texas town. Which is exactly why we choose to hold the Hill Country Film Festival in Fredericksburg. And, when the film is finished, we couldn’t think of a better town to go out and explore for our patrons. Because here, you’ll find everything from museums to historical sites to shopping, great German food, vineyards and more.

Created to celebrate and showcase filmmakers from Texas and around the world, the festival began in 2010. In 2014, HCFF screened over 90 independent films, both short and feature length, as well as hosted filmmaker Q&A/interviews, discussion panels, a filmmaker’s lounge and festival parties.

Thank you to the filmmakers, movie-goers, sponsors and volunteers who support the Hill Country Film Festival!

Texas Hill Country
By John Graves and Wyman Meinzer

Two of Texas' most respected artists join their talents to create an unsurpassed portrait of the Texas Hill Country. "Together, John Graves and Wyman Meinzer once again demonstrate that they  are the foremost artists of the Texas landscape. The portrait they create in images and words is as close as you can come to the heart of the Hill Country without being there." www.utexas.edu

Sherman's Travel
5 Eco Friendly Wineries

Pedernales Cellars, Texas Composting, recycling, and natural pest management is just the starting point for Pedernales Cellars. By building underground, this Texas Hill Country winery takes advantage of the area’s natural limestone to provide a cool and steady environment for case storage, slashing the facility’s energy consumption in half. Removal of invasive plant species and cedar overgrowth from the property has also led to the reemergence of previously lost seeps and springs. An added bonus? The tasting room features local and sustainable products like Bella Vista Ranch’s olive oils and t-shirts made from renewable bamboo fibers.
