Local Flavor, 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 after January 1, 2015.

To be considered for the Local Flavor showcase, your project must be made locally, be locally set or have a local connection, such as an out-of-town director originally from the El Paso area.

Those entries that are selected for screening will be announced in July.

Previous Local Flavor showcases have included works by At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez Lopez, El Paso filmmaker Zach Passero, cinematographer Ellie Ann Fenton, and NMSU Creative Media Institute faculty members Ilana Lapid and Ross Marks.
