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

AFF provides filmmakers an invaluable platform among industry professionals and film-lovers. We’ve helped launch the careers of countless filmmakers including Jason Reitman, Cary Fukunaga, Ray McKinnon, and Stephen Falk.

Networking: The largest of its kind in the world, AFF’s Screenwriters Conference, which takes place during the Festival, attracts groundbreaking producers, agents, managers, and development execs, as well as countless working screenwriters and filmmakers. Once your film is accepted, you get two all-access passes to this creative hub. The conference provides an environment where filmmakers can attend panels with screenwriters and developers to get a jump start on their next film. We love to introduce new filmmakers to our homegrown community and help them find that spark to continue making work.

AFF is accredited by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences®, making all Jury Award-winning narrative short, animated short, and documentary short films eligible for an Academy Award®. AFF is also proud to partner with crowdfunding and distribution website Seed&Spark for its Narrative Feature Competition, PBS award-winning documentary series POV for its Documentary Feature Competition, the International Documentary Association for its Documentary Short Competition, and New Form Digital for its Scripted Digital Series Competition. Each of these sponsors will help choose the winner for their respective category and, schedules permitting, will hold meetings with finalists during the 2016 Festival.
