The non-competitive showcase, generously sponsored by the Texas Film Commission, 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.

Projects must have been completed January 1, 2017 or after, and must be made locally, locally set or have a connection of some kind to the El Paso-Juarez-Las Cruces area (such as a director originally from El Paso).

This year’s Local Flavor series will be curated by El Paso filmmaker Zach Passero, who has been involved with the Plaza Classic Film Festival since it began in 2008. He has worked as a director, producer, editor, animator and actor on films such as Wicked Lake, Motel, Glimpse, All Cheerleaders Die, The Woman, By the River and James and the Giant Peach.

The 11th annual Plaza Classic Film Festival is August 2-12, 2018 in and around the Plaza Theatre.
