Austin Film Festival is pleased to announce the 11th annual Film & Food Party, an evening dedicated to honoring Austin as both a nationally recognized thriving film industry and renowned culinary hotspot. Held in the glamorous and historic Driskill Hotel, this evening of specialty cocktails by Twin Liquors and innovative cuisine, presented by some of Austin’s most notable chefs, brings together Austinites and visitors alike to celebrate the arts. Live and silent auctions present the very best in luxury items, trips and experiences.
Proceeds from the event benefit AFF’s Young Filmmakers Program. The Young Filmmakers Program was founded to encourage students, ages 9 – 18, to explore their creativity and improve their literacy skills through the arts of screenwriting and filmmaking. Programs are offered free through AISD schools and partner organizations and grant more than 300 students and teachers scholarships to the annual Austin Film Festival & Conference.
Updated information for the 2014 Film & Food Party, coming soon!
