About


Our Story

Femme Frontera founder and filmmaker, Angie Reza Tures wanted to host a private screening for friends and family upon the completion of her short film, Memory Box. Thinking that it would be way more fun to host a screening with friends, she reached out to some of her favorite filmmakers in El Paso and asked them to be a part of the screening. What transpired became an exhibition celebrating female filmmakers from the El Paso-Juarez U.S.-Mexico border region called the Femme Frontera Filmmaker Showcase. It premiered at the Alamo Drafthouse on August 1st, 2016 and sold out within ten days. 

Now a collective, the six founding members of Femme Frontera have evolved the Showcase to include women filmmakers from all over the world who challenge stereotypes and false perspectives about women, gender roles, people of color, and the LGBT community. The 2nd Annual Femme Frontera Filmmaker Showcase, held on September 23rd, 2017, received over 185 submissions from around the globe and featured films which thematically push, if not altogether smash, huge barriers in regards to gender, geographical borders, cultural identity, and oppression.  Femme Frontera also continues to advocate for women's voices through media education workshops and community outreach.

         

Femme Frontera is Angie Reza Tures, Ilana Lapid, Iliana Sosa, Jazmin Harvey, Jennifer Lucero, and Laura Theresa Bustillos Jáquez.
