ABOUT US


THE DUSTIN MICHAEL SEKULA MEMORIAL LIBRARY's Cultural Arts Division IS DEDICATED TO PROMOTING THE ARTS FOR THE CITY OF EDINBURG AND SURROUNDING AREAS. 

The City of Edinburg, in an effort to promote the Visual Arts in the Rio Grande Valley, hosts the annual South Texas International Film Festival,  Held in Edinburg, Texas. STXIFF is a competitive international film festival currently accepting films in the categories of Regional Film, Short Film and Feature Length Film.

Helping Build A Burgeoning Industry

Unlike many other young film festivals, STXIFF is intensely focused on building professional connections and opportunities by inviting a wide array of indispensable industry professionals from feature film producers to independent production companies. We strive to bring together local filmmakers and community leaders to help strengthen the South Texas film industry and share our work around the world.
