The Nacogdoches Art Alliance/Nacogdoches Film Festival is an IRS-approved 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose goal is to raise scholarship money for film students attending Stephen F. Austin State University, as well as to provide financial support for the SFA Film program’s annual Summer Feature Film production, where SFA students experience firsthand the making of a full-length feature film.

All members of the Nacogdoches Film Festival are volunteers who receive no financial compensation for their efforts. All proceeds, after festival expenses, go toward scholarships and the annual student feature film project.

There are five primary ways that you can support our efforts: ATTEND the Festival, be a SPONSOR, be a DONOR, be a VOLUNTEER, and/or become a MEMBER of the Nacogdoches Art Alliance.
