Join us for the 7th annual Nacogdoches Film Festival on February 22-24, 2018 at the historic Fredonia Hotel in downtown Nacogdoches, the "Oldest Town in Texas." 

The goal of this film festival is to help develop the next generation of Texas filmmakers and we celebrate films either about Texas or, more importantly, made by Texans. This year's theme is "Getting Started in the Industry" and our featured guests will include actor & director John Schneider, whose initial big break was playing "Bo" in The Dukes of Hazzard; actress & comedienne Ruth Buzzi, whose initial big break came as a cast member on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In; composer Christopher North, who has contributed to more than 40 films and whose music for the film Two Trains Runnin' was just nominated for a Grammy; and director Steve Rash, whose first feature film as a director was The Buddy Holly Story, which went on to receive three academy award nominations.

In addition to our lineup of films, we also feature panel sessions with film industry professionals, as well as competitions for best short film, best feature film, and best high school short film.
