Festival start: 07 April 2022      Festival end: 10 April 2022

When Denver's Holiday and Santa Fe theaters closed in the late 1970s, Denver's access to Spanish-language films on the big screen (aside from the occasional art house run) essentially vanished.

Sensing the need of a growing Spanish-speaking and bilingual community to see themselves on screen and to hear their stories told, Su Teatro started the Chicano Independent Filmmaker's Festival in 1999.

Now, in it's 24th year, the XicanIndie FilmFest has surpassed its original inception, reaching over 500 patrons annually. Although the festival still highlights the work of local and national Chicano independent filmmakers, the four-day event also includes Mexican classics and cutting edge new films from throughout Latin America.

Awards Vary Each Year

Su Teatro is searching for new films for the Xicano Independent Filmmakers' Festival (XIFF) XXIII, filmmakers who tell authentic tales, that speak to the experience of the Latino World, document moving stories and life changing events, visually stimulate and engage the audience.

The XicanIndie seeks to give the filmmakers of tomorrow, the opportunity today, along with reaching filmmakers we just don't know yet, or already love. The festival focuses on films by and about Latinos.
