Rio Grande Film Festival 2018

The Rio Grande Film Festival (RGFF) will  be showcasing short films for independent filmmakers. Submissions are not limited to only Texas but we do encourage local and surrounding area submission.


The RGFF is a project of the Casa de la Cultura in Del Rio, Texas.

Who Decides Which Films Will Be Screened?
