The Borrego Springs Film Festival is a young and popular Southern California juried film festival in the categories of narrative, documentary, animation, latino, and short films. The film screenings take place at the Borrego Springs Performing Arts Center in our small desert resort town surrounded by the 640,000 acres of Anza Borrego Desert State Park. This natural beauty has long attracted tourists and filmmakers and explains the area's strong historical connection to cinema production.
The earliest feature was made here in the 1920's and over 60 films have been shot here since. Film industry personalities come to Borrego Springs to live, work, and play. We welcome your creative energy to our film festival and invite you to join us in building a tradition celebrating innovative filmmaking.
Join us this winter for the best BSFF yet!
