MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The Red Wasp Film Festival is aimed at bringing quality films to the Brazos Valley and increasing appreciation of film and film making.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Red Wasp Film Festival began in 2003 when founders Carol and Craig Conlee first held the festival at 7F Lodge in Wellborn, Texas. In 2006, Brazos Progressives partnered with Carol and Craig, and the festival moved to downtown Bryan, Texas. In 2013, The Arts Council assumed management of the festival and has worked to grow the audience, more than doubling it in the last year. The Arts Council looks forward to viewing films from around the world and bringing the best to The Red Wasp Film Festival and the Brazos Valley. Festival winners will be awarded cash prizes!
