THE 2021 NACOGDOCHES FILM FESTIVAL (previously scheduled for Feb. 18-21, 2021) HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. We will announce dates for the 2022 Nacogdoches Film Festival on this page, on our Facebook page, and on our Film Freeway page as soon as the current COVID-19 situation permits.
The 2020 NacFilmFest will be held at the iconic Fredonia Hotel in downtown Nacogdoches, Texas. Be sure to make your reservations early.
The NacFilmFest is presented each year by the Nacogdoches Art Alliance, a non-profit organization whose goal is to help nurture the next generation of filmmakers.
Here is the schedule of activities and events for all three days of the 2020 NacFilmFest.
Here's how you can help support (sponsor, volunteer, buy tickets, donate) the NacFilmFest and the Nacogdoches Art Alliance.
A significant part of the Film Festival experience is being able to talk with some of the people who helped create the film you just watched.
The NacFilmFest offers a wide variety of opportunities (panel sessions, Q&A following films, etc.) for future filmmakers to learn more about their craft.
Enter your film in any of the following categories: Short Film, Feature Film, Music Video, and High School Short Film. The DEADLINE for entries was January 1, 2020.
Join us for the 9th annual Nacogdoches Film Festival on February 20-22, 2020 at the iconic Fredonia Hotel in downtown Nacogdoches, the Oldest Town in Texas.
Highlighting our Friday evening schedule will be entrepreneur and former world heavyweight champion George Foreman and legendary comedienne Ruth Buzzi, while Saturday evening will feature the recently released documentary film about Nacogdoches' award-winning author, screenwriter and filmmaker, Joe R.

In addition to our selection of films, we also feature panel sessions with film industry professionals, along with competitions in the following categories: SHORT FILM, INDEPENDENT FEATURE FILM, DOCUMENTARY, MUSIC VIDEO, and HIGH SCHOOL SHORT FILM.
