  • What is Laredo Film Society?
    A place to worship the cinema gods. But legally, a non-tax paying entity (ya, know, like a church) that uses film and media arts to create community in the southernmost Texas town along interstate-35, Laredo. And also recruit filmmakers from the region who want to make cool work.
  • How can I join the Film Society?
    Come out to an event, join film club regularly, help us promote the arts in the city.
  • Do you accept volunteers?
    Yes! We are a small team and need all the help we can get. Fill out a contact sheet and send us your résumé and we'll be in touch!
  • Can you screen my film?
    We are always looking for ways to highlight local talent. Have a short film you'd like to screen? Fill out a contact sheet and we'll be in touch.
  • How can I get more involved with you all?
    Volunteer! Film club: help us run film club. Arrive early, set up the projector, make sure patrons feel welcomed. Promotion: help us put flyers around town!
  • Is there a membership fee?
    Well, not exactly. You can go to film club for a $5 donation. Other events will be free or ticketed. Creative HQ, open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm, is open for $10/day. In exchange, you get access to coffee, snacks, drinks, internet access, and a printer! You can go the whole month, twice a week, for $50. If you want to become a monthly patron because you want to keep the arts alive in South Texas, you can donate here. A little goes a long way!
  • I went to The Shining last year! Are you doing it again this year?
  • Can you make my script?
    The short answer is no. Making movies is hard work! The heart of independent cinema is carried by stubborn and passionate individuals who were able to convince and/or pay a group of talented people to help them make a film. However, what we are able to do for you is connect you with other creatives in the gateway city who may be willing to help you out! Filmmaking is a collaborative art form and an incredible way to build community. We hope to serve as a catalyst for inspiration, a place where you meet a collaborator, or learn a thing or two about how to carry on your project. While we don't have the resources to fund and produce the works of many people, if you'd like to get more hands-on experience on all aspects of production, we are currently working on making community projects like InTune Sessions. We are looking for volunteers, supporters, patrons, and more!

Feel free to contact us.
