July 16, 2020

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the Borderland, community members are finding creative ways to adapt.

The El Paso Film Festival is taking its annual event online in an effort to protect filmmakers and movie fans from potential exposure.

“As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in our city and our live event Fall season is still at a standstill, our team has developed a new way to connect with our audience,” says Carlos Corral, Artistic Director of the EPFF.

In lieu of an in-person event, the festival has launched its own streaming tv channels on Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire that allows audiences to experience previous and upcoming film selections.

“Launching our streaming tv channels on Apple, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV is a way for us to use a temporary method for audiences to engage and enjoy our film festival,” says Corral. “All from the comfort and safety of their home.”

Corral is confident the streaming options will provide access to diverse collections of film at a safe social distance to attendees that maintains the festival’s mission to celebrate the film with the support of local partners.
