The El Paso Film Festival (EPFF) is the only Texas film festival to showcase emerging filmmakers on a bi-national stage. As the fastest growing film festival in the state, it provides an inclusive platform where film lovers of every stripe can discover and support the next generation of movie makers.
In our short history, we have attracted a diverse audience of film aficionados, passionate storytellers and filmmaking executives. As the flagship film festival in far west Texas, we are leading the growth of a bi-national stage that empowers the new faces of filmmaking.
EPFF elevates the development of creative voices, storytellers, and vision of all filmmakers as they make their impact in the film and television industry. Every festival year is an opportunity to create engagement and awareness among professional filmmakers, artists, and audiences across a national platform.
The El Paso Film Festival was created by filmmaker Carlos F. Corral in 2018 with the support and philanthropic help of the Paso Del Norte Community Foundation and serves as the organization's 501(c)3 charitable resource for our donors and the community-at-large.
