Austin Film Festival, 1801 Salina Street
Austin, TX 78702
Austin Film Festival furthers the art and craft of filmmaking by inspiring and championing the work of screenwriters, filmmakers, and all artists who use the language of film to tell a story.Founded in 1994, the Austin Film Festival (AFF) was the first organization of its kind to focus on the writers’ creative contribution to film. AFF originally consisted of the Heart of Film Screenwriters Conference, a forum for craft development, inspiration, networking and launching careers created for screenwriters - the film industry’s historically under-represented, as evidenced by the recent writers’ strike. It has since grown to serve all filmmakers and Austin’s arts community and now encompasses a wealth of year-round programming dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the art and impact of storytelling.
