Every year, the Nacogdoches Film Festival brings to town a number of talented individuals who make their living in the film industry. Depending upon arrival and other travel issues, we try to arrange for at least of couple of visiting film industry guests to speak to student classes—on Friday—at the Film Program building.

Once again, this gives film students another opportunity to learn from talented individuals who were “in their shoes” 10/20/30 years ago, who have been successful in making a living in the film industry.

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.
