Previous Film Festivals

The Nacogdoches Film Festival traces its origins back to 2011, when a small group of individuals from throughout the Nacogdoches community got together for the express purpose of celebrating films made by, or about, Texans.

Our very first film festival was held in April 2012 at the Hotel Fredonia in downtown Nacogdoches and has been held every year since then, shifting to a February time slot back in 2014 in order to work around scheduling conflicts with the Texas National art competition and exposition.


The upcoming 2018 Nacogdoches Film Festival will be our seventh annual event.


A brief summary of each of our previous festivals is catalogued below:
