As a competitive film festival, our goal is to award filmmakers cash prizes for their incredible work in cinema, both inside and outside our region.

The Paso Del Norte Community Foundation serves as the El Paso Film Festival's 501(c)3 charitable resource for our donors and the community at-large. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will go towards funding independent filmmakers and their future work.

Contact us at and we will give you instructions on how you can make a donation to the El Paso Film Festival via the Paso Del Norte Community Foundation.
