Lights. Camera. Shorts.


Downtown Tyler Film Festival is a celebration of storytelling through film in East Texas. We accept and show short films from all around the world, but we have a special fondness for local independent works.

Please join us from Sep 24–27, 2014 at the beautifully-renovated Liberty Theater in downtown Tyler, TX for four evenings of films, filmmaker Q&As, receptions, and fun.
