Known as the “Writers Festival” since its inception 24 years ago, Austin Film Festival recognizes the importance of narrative at the core of filmmaking. By celebrating the work of storytellers; those committed to crafting intricate worlds, fully-formed characters, and diverse perspectives, AFF bolsters its reputation as a champion for the creator. AFF provides filmmakers with an invaluable platform among industry insiders and film-lovers alike, and have helped launch the careers of countless filmmakers. Its Narrative, Documentary, and Animated Shorts categories are Academy®-qualifying, and selected filmmakers receive full access to AFF’s world-famous Screenwriters Conference, the largest convergence of screenwriters in the world and a source of inspiration and networking for thousands every year.

Bottom line: Austin Film Festival combs through its submissions for the best stories. AFF prides itself on finding fresh, relevant, and gifted voices from around the world and is a place where new visions and untapped talent can flourish and join a dynamic and welcoming community. It doesn‘t matter where you come from or what you believe; if you have a story to tell, AFF wants to see it.
