The purpose of the West Texas Film Festival is to screen diverse independent films in West Texas.

The festival was launched in 2016 with a grant from Odessa Arts.



Odessa, TX — August 1, 2019 — The West Texas Film Festival is proud to announce the addition of Jared Rush to the Board of Directors. Rush will serve as Vice-President of the film festival, which will be held from November 21st through November 23rd at the Jack Rodgers Fine Art Center at Odessa College in Odessa, Texas. This is the fourth year of the film festival.

Along with Festival Director, Harlan Whatley, Rush will have programming responsibilities for the film festival and contribute to the marketing and sponsorship efforts as well.  By way of his company, Third Man Entertainment, Rush's films include I Am Going To Kill Someone This Friday (2018), Never Go Back (2017), The Black Canyon (2019) and Carnage Radio (2019).

“We are thrilled to have Jared Rush on board with the West Texas Film Festival as he brings a lot of energy and experience to our cinematic efforts in the Permian Basin,” said Harlan Whatley, President and Director of the West Texas Film Festival.

In addition, Odessa attorney-at-law, Laura Carpenter, has joined the festival’s Board of Directors as Secretary. Carpenter has more than 20 years of experience as a trial attorney in the Permian Basin and specializes in family law and criminal defense, practicing virtually all areas within these fields.
