Subharmonic City Showcase
Subharmonic City will be having a one-hour showing of various short films and music videos on Friday, July 28th at 10 PM in the Philanthropy Theatre. We're beyond elated to be part of this long-running El Paso tradition. We hope to see friends there and hopefully make some new ones as well.

I'm honored to have been asked to judge this year's Screenwriting Competition for the Plaza Classic Film Festival. Very excited to see everyone's submissions and the talent on display in El Paso.
An excerpt from the Plaza Classic Film Fest website-
Finalists will be invited to tout their screenplays at the first Plaza Classic Film Festival Pitch Fest at 8 pm Wednesday, July 26 at the International Bar (INTL), 114A Mills Ave. Contestants will have 90 seconds to pitch their screenplays. Hector Gallardo of El Paso’s Subharmonic City Productions will select a $300 first prize toward production of a short film of the script. The audience will choose a favorite by applause — we’ll pass around a bucket for cash donations.
WE'RE GOING TO L.A.!
El Paso participated in the 48 Hour Film Project for the first time ever. An international short film competition in which teams must write, film, and edit a 7-minute short film in 48 hours. On August 12th, all participating teams met up at the kick-off event, where each group was randomly assigned a genre to base their film on. Additionally, all teams were given a character, line of dialogue, and prop that must be used in their film.
Out of 17 competing teams, Subharmonic City took home Best Film!
Along with Best Director and Best Costumes.
Subharmonic City will go on to represent El Paso against all the other city winners around the world at Filmapalooza 2023, happening in March. Wish us luck!
