An Edinburg Arts event

EDINBURG ARTS, A DIVISION OF THE DUSTIN MICHAEL SEKULA MEMORIAL LIBRARY, IS DEDICATED TO PROMOTING THE ARTS FOR THE CITY OF EDINBURG AND SURROUNDING AREAS. 

The City of Edinburg in an effort to promote the Visual Arts in the Rio Grande Valley hosts the annual South Texas International Film Festival,  held in Edinburg, Texas. STXIFF is a competitive international film festival currently accepting films in the categories of Regional Film, Short Film and Feature Length Film.

Sharing more of our world...

South Texas International Film Festival strives to showcase the work of visionary filmmakers from all over the world; and features regional, national, and international films that have a unique voice and style.

Helping Build A Burgeoning Industry

Unlike many other young film festivals, STXIFF is intensely focused on building professional connections and opportunities by inviting not only talented directors and actors but also a wide array of indispensable industry professionals from feature film producers to independent production companies. We strive to bring together local filmmakers and community leaders to help strengthen the South Texas film industry and share our work around the world. 

The third annual South Texas International Film Festival will consist of a three day festival featuring full length film screenings, a short film competition, panel discussions, hands on workshops, a professional filmmaker’s mixer, a feature film pitch fest, and various social events. By featuring affordable application fees, diverse viewpoints and independent funding and distribution opportunities we hope to become a destination film festival for talented film makers from around the world. 

In an effort to grow awareness of the festival and encourage community participation select screenings, panels and workshops will be free and open to the public.
