The Red Wasp Film Festival is dedicated to bringing quality films to the Brazos Valley and increasing appreciation of film and film making.
When did the Red Wasp Film Festival begin?
The Red Wasp Film Festival began in 2003. Founders Carol and Craig Conlee first held the festival at 7F Lodge in Wellborn, TX. In 2006, Brazos Progressives partnered with Carol and Craig, and the festival moved to downtown Bryan, TX. In 2014, The Arts Council assumed management of the festival.
Where did the name come from?
Carol Conlee came up with the name when she and her husband Craig first started the festival it was held during the spring, when the red wasps were coming out. Carol decided to make the “pesky” wasps part of the festival and named it after them!
