Coca-Cola Coke City wins Gold and Skittles Mindbender wins Silver at Worldfest 2009.

WorldFest Houston International Film Festival is an annual film festival, dedicated to the independent feature and short film, held in Houston, Texas.

WorldFest-Houston is one of the three original International film festivals in North America, after San Francisco and New York. It was founded in 1961 as an international Film Society. It is the only totally dedicated Independent International Film Festival in North America, as it does not accept films from the major studios. The festival was founded by producer/director Hunter Todd to present a film festival for the independent filmmakers. [1]

WorldFest gave first honors to Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, Ridley Scott, The Coen Brothers, David Lynch, Brian De Palma and many more. All screenings, seminars and events are open to the public, and the festival presents around 55 new Indie feature films and 100 new Indie Short films each April.
