Mesa Film Festival

MFF is an innovative showcase for filmmakers from around the globe.


The Mesa Film Festival is an innovative showcase for filmmakers from around the globe. This past year, we had the honor of screening 132 films from around the world and created unique opportunities for filmmakers to network and have a great time. This festival was created to highlight creativity from diverse voices.

The city of Mesa is excited to show you why it is quickly becoming one of fastest growing artistic gems in the state of Arizona.
