Our vision and mission

Since 2014, the Laredo Media and Film Festival mission is to encourage and support young filmmakers, animators, and broadcasters to showcase their work to a broader audience and provide the necessary skills to continue in this industry (Mass Communications and Film).


We want to create awareness of this industry in the city and establish a solid Media and Film Festival that nurtures learning in our high school and college students.


Every year, the festival invites local, regional, state and out-of-state professionals to share their talents and gifts with local students and create a community of learners in the city. 

"The ability to observe is a must in this world and

what the lens captures is a plus."
