About Texas Independent Film Festival
Texas Independent Film Festival is an entirely student-run film festival and conference that takes place every Spring in College Station, Texas at Texas A&M University. The event's mission is to celebrate the vision and enterprise of some of the world's finest contemporary independent filmmakers in the great state of Texas.
The annual event is run by Aggie SWAMP (ScreenWriting, Acting, & Movie Production) Club and brings truly independent cinema and film discussion to the Bryan/College Station community, showcasing emerging artists and visions. Each year, Texas Independent Film Festival is organized under a new group of student leaders at Texas A&M that work hard to plan and operate the entire festival from "call for entries" through the final audience applause.
Texas Film Festival was founded in 1993 by Texas A&M MSC Film Society chairman Paul Alvarado- Dykstra with a mission to "celebrate the vision and enterprise of America's finest contemporary independent and minority filmmakers." Since its inception it grew over 12 years to be the largest student-run independent film festival in the nation.
The festival has had the privilege to showcase the talent of independent filmmakers from around the globe. Past festival guests have included Spike Lee, Oliver Stone, Tim McCanlies, Robert Rodriguez, Sean Astin, John Landis, and John Waters. Every year the festival was able to grow and reach an even wider audience.
