Screening venue

Waco Hippodrome

The Waco Hippodrome is a film lover's dream.  Equipped with a full service kitchen, bar and waitstaff, movie-goers can eat, drink and watch a show, all while sitting in the theater's recently renovated seats.  In addition, audiences can check out paintings, sculptures and works from local artists in the Hippodrome lobby. This century old gem may have started as a vaudeville theater, but it's evolved into a Waco cultural hot spot.

Cultivate 7Twelve

Cultivate 7Twelve is new to Waco and the film festival. More than an art gallery, its a hub of Waco culture as it’s expressed through art, good, food and drink. Just two doors down from the Hippodrome, its centralized and convenient to both filmmakers and movie-goers. It will be our destination for panels and parties.
