The CreArte Expo Latinx Short Film Awards takes place in Brownsville, Texas. We want to encourage, support and honor emerging Latinx filmmakers and films that have Latino themes. We accept all genres, including sci-fi, fantasy, horror, animation and documentary. We will honor filmmakers whose work exemplifies originality, diversity and creativity.
The festival Jury will present one film with the Grand Jury Award. The winner will receive a $1,000 post production services award from DC Creative.
The Audience Award for Best Film will be voted on by the audience at each screening. The awards will be announced at the CreArte Expo in Brownsville.
A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the CreArte Expo Spirit Awards. The award honors artists and organizations for their work in the arts, public service and social justice. The recipients will receive a special tribute and be presented with the award.
We were blown away by the many great films that were submitted to us. The judges faced the difficult task of selecting the films to present at the Expo.
