Success Stories

David Blue Garcia

Director of Tejano

El Paso Film festival is a wonderful new fest founded and run by filmmakers who are active in building the West Texas film community. Go for the weekend and you will receive the star treatment, eat well, and make new friends. You may even be lucky enough to receive a guided tour of some hot spots El Paso and nearby Juarez, Mexico from the festival staff.


Mark Dennis

Director of Time Trap

Great venues, fun parties, and welcoming people. Everyone with the festival was really friendly and after the opening night movies played, we all went out to a bar down the street. If you can go to one of the filmmaker mixers before the screenings, you'll eat and drink like royalty.

We were lucky enough to go on the night of the Beto documentary where Ted Cruz protestors were waving signs and shouting "Build the Wall!" during the Q&A afterwards. I've been to dozens of film festival Q&A's and countless other movies and have never seen so much excitement in a theater. Good job, EPFF Year One.


Denise Dorado

Producer & Actress of Amalia

I can't tell you what an incredible time we had at the festival! Wow!! From seeing old friends, to meeting many wonderful new people, and finally sharing 'Amalia' with our city, it was truly a PERFECT experience. Thank you again for all of your hard work putting this together!


Chris Cole

Producer of Porno

Great festival, with a great staff. Carlos, the director, organizes a very seamless and efficient series of screenings and events within the tight-knit community of El Paso, so you always know where to go, and actually get to know people. The venues are beautiful, with the main theater being a historic one that was beautifully renovated. Hosting it over a long weekend without a bunch of competing screenings, and plenty of local programming, creates a congenial atmosphere that is hard to find.
