NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

The Nacogdoches Film Festival gets underway tomorrow night attracting film buffs and a few celebrities.

You may recall John Schneider of Dukes of Hazzard fame and Ruth Buzzi, a regular on laugh in. 

Both will be promoting a new film they've produced together. 

The Nacogdoches Film Festival celebrates its sixth year, thanks to hard work from the Nacogdoches Art Alliance.

"The purpose of the film festival is to provide an event in film for the community,” said Ron Johnson, a volunteer with the Nacogdoches Film Festival. “And second, to provide film scholarships for outstanding film students and third is to be a financial partner and help support the summer film feature which is shot by the film school every year."

There are still tickets available for the films and panel discussions.
