El Paso Film Festival

Special Guest : Robert Rodriguez

Thursday, Oct 24, 2019  |  7:00pm  |  Plaza Theatre

EPFF is proud to host director Robert Rodriquez as he presents his film ‘RED 11’ along with a filmmaking Master Class on October 24, 7pm, at the Plaza Theater. This exclusive event kicks off our 2019 festival. You’ll learn exactly how Rodriquez produced his newest sci-fi thriller RED 11 under the same limitations he faced while making El Mariachi — this time with the help of his talented sons, Racer and Rebel.

Rodriquez re-wrote the rules of filmmaking 25 years ago with his highly acclaimed breakout film ‘El Mariachi’ — produced singlehandedly for a mere $7,000. Since then, he’s kept our eyes glued to the screen with an enviable list of blockbusters: Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Faculty, the Spy Kids franchise, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Frank Miller’s Sin City, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D, Grindhouse, Machete and Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For.
