indie films in the Hi-Desert


The Joshua Tree International Film Festival’s mission is to provide a platform for independent and noteworthy films and filmmakers, connecting them with diverse audiences and industry professionals that recognize Joshua Tree as an oasis of creativity, art and culture throughout the international arts community. 

​​With special focus and support for  projects that encompass the diverse vision of Black, indigenous and LBGTQ films throughout the world, the JTIFF endeavours to be a platform for films that illuminate, inspire, and invoke audiences to action.

"The JTIFF will cast the widest possible net and nurture mindful and conscious filmmakers and audiences in Joshua Tree and beyond." - Eric Quander, JTIFF Founder
