Waco Independent Film Festival

I attended my first-ever film festival in 2016 at the Austin Film Festival, and I fell in love. Then a year later the Deep in the Heart Film Festival (now the Waco Independent Film Festival) premiered in Waco. I spent three days seated in front of a screen, absorbing incredible films by indie filmmakers who made up for lack of budget with creativity and perseverance. I still consider “Into the Who Knows!” as one of my favorite films, and I’ll never forget director Micah Barber taking the stage after the screening with the little Felix plushie featured in the film. 2024 will mark the eighth year of indie films, and it keeps getting better. — Emily Ober
