Local Flavor titles, programs announced

June 25

The El Paso Community Foundation’s 10th annual Plaza Classic Film Festival is pleased to announce the selections for this year’s Local Flavor showcase.

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.

The 10th annual Plaza Classic Film Festival is August 3-13, 2017 in and around the Plaza Theatre.

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.

This year’s series will showcase three features in the Philanthropy Theatre, three programs of shorts in the Foundation Room, projects made by the students in our third annual Plaza Classic Film Camp and a matinee that will include winners from the Downtown Management District’s Reel Authentico contest.

The fun begins with the 13th annual The Good, The Bad, The Indie at 8 p.m. Friday, August 4 in the Foundation Room, 333 N. Oregon.
