It looks like Victoria City Council will meet 4 p.m. Friday to discuss a new venture that could see some Hotel Occupancy Tax funds.

Anthony Pedone wants Victoria to have a film festival -- more specifically, a multi-day, independent film festival the weekend after Austin's South by Southwest in March.

From the website: The Victoria Texas Independent Film Festival was created to celebrate the art of independent filmmaking, and introduce Victoria to an artform, that has been under-represented in our community. The festival is organized by Texas Artists’ Cultural Alliance. TACA is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that strives to encourage, promote and cultivate indepenent film prodcution in Victoria, TX.

What do you think? Could Victoria stand a film festival and is one deserving of these limited funds.
