The Wrap is Las Cruces and Doña Ana County’s monthly filmmakers hangout.

We are currently accepting submissions for all forms of video content. This could be a segment for you school’s broadcast episode, short film, commercial, music video, documentary, or time-lapse reel. If it can be played through a projector, we will likely accept it!

Whether you are a high school student or professional, we encourage every creative in the Las Cruces area to submit a project you would like shown on the big screen!

A town hall forum will kick off the show from 6:30pm – 7:00pm. This is an opportunity for anyone in Las Cruces and Doña Ana County to engage with Film Las Cruces staff regarding any questions or comments you have about the film industry activities happening in the area.
