Show us your shorts!

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - On Thursday, the downtown Tyler Arts coalition announced a new film festival to take place at Liberty hall this October.

The festival themed, "show us your shorts" will showcase 25 short comedic films by filmmakers across the state. The four day festival will kick off on October twelfth and is intended to complement the Rose Festival.  Organizers say the event won't just promote the arts, but will benefit the city economically.

"It'll help generate hotel/motel tax that's generated in our community and reinvested in Tyler. it will also give business to our restaurants and our retail outlets because people will be coming to Tyler from all over the state," explained Susan Guthrie with the City of Tyler.

All entries must be fifteen minutes or less and shot mainly within Texas.
