RGV Film Society’s mission is to ignite the advancement of the Rio Grande Valley’s motion picture industry, empower filmmakers and support the creative community. We’re about getting people “Filming” in the RGV, The Show Biz, and Our Community and Culture.

Weekend of film is a weekend take over where you can explore all aspects of film making here locally. it's an opportunity to hear from experts. An evening to showcase local talent, local films, local content- all things RGV on the big screen. There are plenty of video projects, short films, documentaries and features being shot in the beautiful Rio Grande Valley...
However there wasn't a night to recognize this work until now, The Weekend of Film focuses on showcasing local projects.

Films and videos must have a valley connection, that is the theme of the screening. This is an opportunity to showcase local talent.
To qualify your project it must have a valley connection. For example; At least 1 above the line filmmakers should be from the Rio Grande Valley, and or the production should have been shot in the Rio Grande Valley, and or take place in the Rio Grande Valley for consideration to name a few. The evening programming at Weekend of Film is intended to be a showcase of local work, due to the nature of submissions and available time not all submissions will be selected.

Feature film projects:
Feature film productions are encouraged to submit a portion of the film that can alternatively screen as well as a trailer.

Date produced:
This is the last year that the Weekend of Film will include projects more than 5 years old. So if you have a production you would like to share with the local community this is the year to submit your work.
