Mission / description The Texas Film Festival was started in 1993 by A&M Film Society member 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 20 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.

However, in 2005 the festival stopped running. In the Summer of 2010 the Texas A&M Aggie SWAMP Club (Screenwriting Acting and Movie Production) decided to restore the Texas Film Festival to it’s former glory, in lieu of it’s own annual festival.
