The Nacogdoches Film Festival (Nacogdoches Art Alliance) 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.

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.

There are four primary ways that you can support our efforts: be a sponsor, be a donor, be a volunteer, and/or become a member of the Nacogdoches Art Alliance.
