Austin Film Festival is one of the most important resources in the United States for screenwriters and filmmakers as well as an important part of Austin’s growing filmmaking community. The support of our members allows us to bring more independent films to Austin, promote film production in Texas, celebrate screenwriters’ contributions to the film industry and introduce filmmaking and screenwriting to the young people in our community.

The Young Filmmakers Program, which includes our Young Filmmakers Exhibition, Film Competition and Screenplay Competition, is made possible by the support of our members. This popular program is open to young people, ages 9-18, and offers them rare exposure to screenwriting, filmmaking, and television production as well as one-on-one interaction with industry professionals.

Austin Film Festival is a 501-3 organization. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law. AFF has also made great strides promoting film production in Texas. Your support helps us to further the art and craft of filmmaking in our state.
