Film Festival

Largest student-run film festival in the country


About us

North Texas is a haven for youth passionate about filmmaking. Dallas area staples such as the vibrant Deep Ellum and the bustling arts district lend themselves to the inspirations of students with boundless creative potential, the wealth of which should be nurtured and represented to the fullest extent. However, despite the increasing accessibility to filmography equipment and tools, exposure often stands between artists, and the support and recognition they deserve.

The Pegasus Film Festival was created in 2015 by Dallas educator and artist Niloo Jalilvand with these dreamers in mind.  Our team seeks to close the gap by giving filmmakers the chance to present their art to both an audience and a panel of judges. Through this, they will learn invaluable lessons, make meaningful connections with industry professionals, and become familiarized with the film festival experience. Our festival does this in four ways: Hosting an annual film festival exclusively for student filmmakers, awarding opportunities to intern with industry professionals, such as ATK PLN, to festival winners, offering students various paid internship positions for the Pegasus Film Festival Leadership team, and holding an annual Pegasus Summer Intensive course taught by industry filmmakers for college credit.
