There is a reason people travel from all over the world to attend this prestigious, one-of-a-kind film festival, which local Arkansans have the privilege of having in their backyard.

We are thrilled to offer a unique cultural and educational opportunity to share stories from around the world with local Arkansans, and to show visitors the beautiful and rich history of our incredible state.

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival is fueled entirely by the support of a thriving community of filmgoers and film lovers and we hope that you will consider supporting the 28th Annual Festival.

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival has grown over the years and gained national recognition having been designated an Oscar® qualifying festival in the category of Documentary Short Subject by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, one of only 38 accredited festivals worldwide. HSDFF has also been named one of the top 30 festivals in the U.S. by Top Events USA, while MovieMaker Magazine has added HSDFF to its annual list of “Top 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” from a field of close to 7000 festivals.

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival continues to expand youth engagement offerings with free family screenings, hand-on thematic art workshops, special celebrity guests, and most notably by hosting a significant student program with Arkansas Educational Television Network, “Emerging Filmmakers.” This program consists of workshops and seminars where nearly one hundred middle and high school students from across the State of Arkansas are instructed by top university film department professors, working industry professionals, and even an Oscar winner or two.

With your support, we can continue to grow the festival and inspire so many filmmakers and film lovers in our community.
