What makes the Austin Film Festival unique among other festivals is its emphasis on screenwriting. In addition to filmmaking awards, the festival celebrates innovative work in both screenplay and teleplay writing. The AFF also includes a conference component with breakout groups and talks led by leaders in the television and film industry. The event is often attended by Hollywood heavyweights and is known for being a launching point for gifted screenwriters and filmmakers.

We hope to see your film!
