LFS produces short films, commercials, and video content highlighting local culture.
We see the United States-Mexico border as a place of value that is worthy of investment. Laredo is a bridge between the United States and Latin America, where creatives can tell stories that illustrate the experience of living on the Border in relation to a wider global landscape.
We further recognize the power of narrative to shape our individual and collective experience, channeling our relationship to place and to each other through visual reflection.
