Plaza Classic Film Festival
August 1, 2019 to August 11, 2019
El Paso, TX
About the Event:
The Plaza Classic Film Festival, now in its 11th year, was started by the El Paso Community Foundation in 2008 as a special project to bring movies back to the historic Plaza Theatre. The Community Foundation purchased 35mm and state-of-the-art digital projection equipment for the atmospheric theater, which opened in 1930, closed in the early ’80s, and was restored for $38 million in 2006 in a joint partnership between the City of El Paso and the Community Foundation.
The festival also features the Local Flavor Series, a non-competitive showcase sponsored by the Texas Film Commission. The series is the region’s largest showcase of independently made shorts, features, animated, documentaries, music videos, and experimental films. Any type of film may be submitted. No works-in-progress will be accepted.Back to the event calendar
