Due to the virus pandemic, this years’ film festival will be digitally streamed. 

Join us as we share in a one-of-a-kind experience, the power of watching timeless stories through the independent lens of today's thought provoking and game-changing filmmakers from across the country and around the globe.

Enjoy the Gallup Film Festival from the best seat in the house, your home.

Gallup Film Festival is still selecting the films for our 8th Annual Film Festival.  We appreciate all of our filmmakers who've submitted their films and are making this year's festival a success.  

Gallup Film Festival would like to ask the Audience to Vote for their favorite Films, Actors and Actresses for 2020. 

Gallup Film Festival provides its sponsoring partners with a full spectrum of marketing visibility. Levels of sponsorship provide varying levels of promotion, all of which are designed to afford the corporation maximum visibility both at the festival, press releases and the print program.

Do you have a love for film and want to help a great organization? We are in need of volunteers to help us prepare for the 2019 Gallup Film Festival. As a volunteer, you’ll get the opportunity to immerse yourself in such varied departments as registration, theater operations, conference, hospitality and transportation, all while working with a wonderful staff. 

In addition to an extensive schedule of entertainment, film screenings and activities at Gallup Film Festival, there will be a great variety of unique and interesting goods for sale at several locations throughout the site.  Each year Gallup Film Festival is committed to selecting quality craft and merchandise vendors.


Gallup is enriched by the cultures of numerous First Nations, including Zuni, Hopi, Acoma and Laguna Pueblo and Navajo people as well as Latin American communities. The city boasts vibrant native arts, ceremonies, jewelry and cuisine representing its blend of cultures. The land surrounding Gallup holds many mysteries and adventures as well, from the High Desert Trail System and the Mentmore Rock Climbing area to sacred Mt. Taylor and the Church Rock Trail.
