About Us

We love horror films. It’s as simple as that. And over the years we’ve learned that there is a vast network of cool short-form terror flicks out there that don’t get a lot of attention because they are not a product of the Hollywood machine. Low-budget, no-budget, grass-roots, indie — any and all that fit the bill, the Texas Terrors Film Festival was created to celebrate these, and all things spooky, creepy, and scary.

Festival Director JE (Jeff) Smith is a Dallas-based filmmaker whose early efforts were comedy-centric, including the comic-nerd web series Stella B. and the Busted League, the superhero comedy SideKICKED, Trek spoof Ronnie Redshirt, and others. His first horror film, Bonk Bonk, has played at more than half a dozen film festivals, and won the “Best Texas Micro Horror Film” award at the Lionshead Film Festival in 2017. He is a veteran of the film festival process, and has made every effort to make TTFF an enjoyable experience for the contributors as well as the patrons.
