Downtown Tyler Film Festival: Emcee's Blog - Day 2


To say I wasn't nervous last night would be a lie. I definitely was. But, I wasn't scared nervous. I was more nervous in the sense I wanted to do a good job because I absolutely love this event.

Now that my short little ramble is over let's talk about tonight's films.

Tonight's selections are from all over the globe.

It's incredible to see the talent from all over the world. But, it's even more incredible to see what different people in different regions of the world can do with the same tool. A camera.

There are a total of twelve film's tonight ranging from here in the U.S. to as far as Uzbekistan.

The twelve film's for the evening are:
