WorldFest, originally Cinema Arts, is one of the original three North American independent film festivals. Over the years since its beginning, the film festival has screened the biggest flicks in cinematography history and honored the greats, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, the Coen Brothers and more. This year, the festival returns to Houston’s AMC Studio 30 Dunvale Theaters and premieres over 50 feature films and 100 short films. The festival takes place from April 8 to 17.

Attendees of the festival looking for accommodations should consider the Houston Marriott West Loop by the Galleria. One of the leading West Houston hotels, the Marriott positions guests minutes from the AMC Studio 30 Dunvale Theater and the WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival. Guests at the Houston Marriott West Loop can enjoy spacious accommodations that offer premium movie channels—in case WorldFest attendees want to watch even more films.

Every year, the WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival receives thousands of submissions across a number of categories. Submissions compete for the coveted Remi Awards, the highest accolades for creativity. In each category, the judges award platinum, gold, silver and bronze Remi Awards. The best way to discover which film wins this year is to attend firsthand. Tickets to the festival are still available and can be purchased on the WorldFest Film Festival website.
