Join us for a family fun 3 day weekend in Willcox, AZ, and experience a film festival competition solely for the western genre and subgenres! It'll be filled with great indie films and fun that will be legendary! Our hope is to attract high profile and novice filmmakers so attendees of the festival will enjoy an array of artistic experiences of western films and individuals driven by the true and raw spirit of independent movie making.
TWBFF is a competitive event for emerging filmmakers, screenwriters, authors and more! We hope to inspire and encourage them to pursue courageous and bold artistic visions in the western genre. This festival is known for embracing western and western sub-genres.
