The South Texas International Film Festival is an annual event hosted in Edinburg, Texas in the United States. We're an up and coming film festival dedicated to showcasing the best of the new film market, honing our programming and events to a demonstration of cultural diversity, fresh ideas, and just straight up fun.

    Thank you for giving our film, Mr. Zoot Suit, the Best Documentary Short Award! I couldn't be there personally, but members of my film attended and really enjoyed the event. Thank you for your hospitality, and I look forward to submitting more works in the future! Great festival overall!

    Our entire "Bibi" Short Film team would like to say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for the honor to screen our beloved short film at the 5th Annual South Texas International Film Festival. We are truly humbled by the recognition of winning three awards ("Best RGV Actor", "Best RGV Director" and "Best RGV Short Film") and blown away by how well "Bibi" was received by audiences across the Rio Grande Valley. This is why we create the work that we do, and we are grateful to know we've touched the hearts of many.

    There is a lot of talent in the Valley and we are excited to keep supporting the festival and future film projects in the area. Cheers to a fantastic festival and we look forward to seeing STXIFF grow.
