      EVENT DETAILS
      Downtown Tyler Film Festival

      The Downtown Tyler Film Festival began as the privately funded "No-Name Film Fest" in the fall of 2004. Adopted by the City of Tyler in 2011, the festival became known as the Downtown Tyler Film Festival, and has remained true to its original mission of being dedicated to helping new filmmakers learn as much a possible in an honest and open format. We don't do agendas here, and we don't play favorites.

      The festival is operated by the film/theater workgroup of the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition (DTAC) which is funded and administered by the City of Tyler and the Heart of Tyler (HOT) Downtown Tyler Revitalization Organization. The festival operates out of the city-funded offices of Gallery Main Street, 110 West Erwin, and principal screenings take place at the newly-remodeled and city-operated Liberty Hall theater space (libertytyler.com) located on East Erwin Street in Downtown Tyler.

      The festival is a sponsor-funded and non-profit operation and is administered by volunteers who are driven to promote growth and appreciation for independent film. Festival administrators report to both HOT and the City of Tyler for oversight.

      The festival focuses on short films as a means of reaching out to as many new producers as possible. Festival directors pride themselves on having some of the best breakout sessions available, and encourage producers to attend as many of these special work sessions as their schedules allow.
