The SAN ANGELO REVOLUTION FILM FESTIVAL was created after the City of San Angelo acquired the Film Friendly Texas designation from the Texas Film Commission. The San Angelo Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), a division of the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, manages the festival along with a committee of leaders from across the city.

The CVB works in collaboration with the creators of the Austin Revolution Film Festival, which has captured the indie film vibe of Austin since 2014. The Austin Revolution festival has gained a great reputation from filmmakers and fans alike, ensuring a high quality event and striving to bring unique and truly independent voices to the Texas Capitol.

The San Angelo Revolution introduces the independent film to a West Texas audience, as well as visitors from across the world. We look forward to a successful festival and to having attendees join us in our oasis in West Texas, off the beaten path.

Unique trophies created by the San Angelo artist community.

A $10,000 grant given to the Concho Creator of the Year

    What a wonderful festival! I've never felt so personally welcomed and taken care of. The city is beautiful, the people are lovely, the films were a blast, and I'm already counting down to next year!

  • I drove from Jacksonville, Florida to San Angelo, Texas for SARFF and I'm glad I did! This is a great small, town, with some cool places such as "The Bearded Batista" coffee house. I really enjoyed seeing Urban Cowboy on the Friday night of the festival and a couple of people from that classic movie were in attendance to answer Q and A. My own documentary played to about 35 people, which I thought was pretty good for a 11am Saturday screening. They had a "filmmakers meet and greet" on the Thursday night before the festival which was very pleasant. Both screening rooms were nice and just across the street from each other. I had my own car with me so I had no issues getting around San Angelo, not a lot of traffic there. Not sure what it would be like to attend without a vehicle. Some photos and videos from my experience are here on my blog: https://mikemessier.com/2022/10/03/san-angelo-revolution-film-festival-screens-disregard-the-vampire-a-mike-messier-documentary/

  • What a great weekend! SARFF is definitely one to keep an eye on - It's going to grow fast. The festival organizers and the people at Discover San Angelo do a great job of making the filmmakers feel welcomed and appreciated, the programming is top notch and the venues are gorgeous! This one is bound to become a must on the circuit!

    Love it if you'd build in some sight-seeing/tours into the schedule. The two days were so jam packed with screenings that I didn't want to miss that I didn't get to explore the area - for a first time visitor to West Texas I'm sorry I didn't get to see more of the locale! But if invited back I'll definitely schedule some time in to check out the scene!
