Red Wasp Film Festival Comes to Downtown Bryan November 1st & 2nd

This weekend the 11th Annual Red Wasp Film Festival will take place in Downtown Bryan at StageCenter Community Theatre (201-B W. 26th, Bryan, Texas)! Doors open at 6pm on Friday and Saturday evening, and films will be shown beginning at 6:30pm. Tickets will be sold at the door for $15 for one night or $25 for both nights. Student tickets are available for $10 for one night, $15 for both nights. Each year a committee selects films submitted by filmmakers and screenwriters from around the world for the festival. This year’s showings include films by French and Polish filmmakers, a zom-com (zombie comedy) and lively short films! The festival will conclude with an awards ceremony that will recognize the best films and screenplay submissions with trophies created by local artist Theodora Saladino Krc. For more detailed event information please visit the Red Wasp Film Festival website (redwasp.org) or by searching Red Wasp Film Festival on Facebook.

The first festival was organized in 2003 by Carol and Craig Conlee, two local film enthusiasts. Originally, the festival was held outdoors during the springtime, and red wasps would frequently pester the guests. In an attempt to bring humor to the situation the Conlees decided to name the festival after the pests, hence the name Red Wasp Film Festival. Since then, the festival has grown and is now held annually in Downtown Bryan. Each year the festival grows more popular and attracts larger crowds and more interesting films.

The Arts Council has supported the Festival for years and will begin managing the Red Wasp Film Festival in 2014. The Arts Council hopes to expand the festival so that many more film lovers will be able to enjoy artistic and innovative films in the Brazos Valley for many years to come!
