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 were are and what we do.

For the past five years, the Nacogdoches Film Festival has sponsored a competition in the short film category, with winners coming from as nearby as Nacogdoches and as far away as Colorado Springs and Verona, Italy.

This year, we are adding two new competition categories: one for full-length feature films and one for short films by High School students. All entries must be submitted through Film Freeway.
