Submissions for the 12th annual El Paso Community Foundation Plaza Classic Film Festival’s Local Flavor showcase are now being accepted.

It’s FREE to enter the region’s largest showcase of locally made and connected films.

The film series, sponsored by the Texas Film Commission, features short and feature-length films of various types, including fiction, documentary, animated, experimental and music video.

More than $1,500 in cash will be handed out in the second annual Local Flavor Awards, sponsored by the Public Relations Association of the Southwest.

Entry deadline is 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 16, 2019. No exceptions!

Submissions may be made at plazaclassic.com/localflavor.

Any type of film may be submitted. No works-in-progress will be accepted. Projects must have been completed January 1, 2018 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).

Entries selected for the Local Flavor series will be announced in July and screened during the festival.

Returning curators are El Paso filmmakers Zach Passero (The Weird Kidz, The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot, Wicked Lake, Motel, Glimpse), who has been involved with the Plaza Classic Film Festival since it began in 2008, and Lucky McKee (Kindred Spirits, The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot, The Woods, The Woman), who first appeared at PCFF with his All Cheerleaders Die in 2014.
