Plaza Classic Film Festival -

If you love movies, old and new, this is the film festival for you! Taking place in and around the historic Plaza Theatre in downtown El Paso, the Plaza Classic Film Festival celebrates its 16th year as the world’s largest classic film festival. More than 500,000 people have attended the first 15 Plaza Classics, with about 15 percent of its audience coming from outside of the El Paso/Juárez/Las Cruces radius. The El Paso Community Foundation’s Plaza Classic Film Festival returns to the Plaza Theatre, July 20 – 30, 2023.

The Plaza Classic Film Festival also has become a major showcase for regional filmmakers through its Local Flavor series, sponsored by the Texas Film Commission. It screens features, shorts, documentaries and other projects, and its audience has tripled in recent years. Last year, Local Flavor handed out $1,750 in cash prizes to local filmmakers in the third annual Local Flavor Awards, sponsored by the Public Relations Association of the Southwest.
