The Deep in the Heart Film Festival is back! We’re looking for films that make us laugh, cry, or even scream. If you have a great story, we want it at our festival. We seek to showcase the best in independent film from Texas, the US and the world. We want to share great films, inspire filmmakers, create networking opportunities and show our guests some genuine Texas hospitality.

We proudly screen at the Waco Hippodrome, a former vaudeville theater that’s over a century old. The Hippodrome is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and has seen Elvis Presley and John Wayne enter it’s doors. Always a Waco tradition, the Hippodrome has been reborn as a central Texas destination - now with recent renovations in seating, projection, and the addition of full kitchen and bar.
