The preeminent film festival at the far edge of Texas.

The El Paso Film Festival (EPFF) showcases 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 regional movie makers. EPFF is among the few festivals in the nation that brings the film’s directors to the audience they entertain. In our short history, we have attracted a diverse audience of film aficionados, passionate story tellers 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. Not only are we the fastest growing festival in the state, we are also the hardest working. Every festival year is an opportunity to create engagement and awareness among professional filmmakers, artists, and audiences across a national platform.

EPFF elevates the creative voice and vision of all filmmakers as they make their path towards the film and television industry by connecting them with seasoned professionals for mentorship and collaborative opportunities. Our efforts are creating a destination event for the region that can stimulate the economy as well as the arts. Bringing films from outside the traditional studio system bucks the status quo with stories and perspectives that challenge us as much as it entertains us.

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 which serves as the organization's 501(c)3 charitable resource for donors, sponsors and the community-at-large.
