A significant part of the Film Festival experience is being able to talk with some of the people who helped make the film you just watched, as well as to ask them questions about the what, or the why, or the how of the filmmaking process.


The Nacogdoches Film Festival is about more than simply watching films. It is, first and foremost, about gaining a better understanding of the intricacies of filmmaking while, at the same time, being entertained. It is an experience in intellectual engagement.

An important part of our mission is to help develop and nurture the future of film making in all media platforms. Providing learning opportunities for young and budding filmmakers is at the core of who we are and what we do.

We will be posting a list of our film industry guests for the upcoming 2019 Nacogdoches Film Festival on this webpage as information becomes available. (NOTE: this list is subject to change if unforeseen circumstances dictate):
