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 Hall in downtown Tyler, TX for films, filmmaker Q&As, receptions, and fun.

About DTFF

Downtown Tyler Film Festival was started in 2011 as a venue for encouraging local filmmakers to hone their craft and introducing local cinephiles to new storytellers. We care deeply about putting on a quality festival that caters to filmmakers and cinephiles alike. Our festival is laid back and film-focused. Viewings take place at the Liberty Hall Theater, with additional receptions and gatherings held at the Gallery Main Street and at restaurants on the square.
