They are an intimate vibrant festival in one of the most beautiful locations in the United States: Borrego Springs, CA. The film screenings take place at the Borrego Springs Performing Arts Center every January. The community supports the festival and always sells-out our festival passes. Packed houses and a raucous Q&A are all part of the event and they’re an old-school film festival. You’ll meet and greet your audience, have a blast, and interact with everyone!
BSFF filmmakers are honored guest in their town. They’ll treat you to a wonderful opening gala, parties, a private lounge area, and discount lodging in Borrego Springs. One huge theater, one big screen, and endless community enthusiasm, it’s a winning combo.
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 festival occurs 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.
