What began as a way to celebrate great writing and storytelling through film in 1993 by Barbara Morgan and Marsha Milam, has become one of the most hailed film festivals in the world. Known as the “Writer’s Festival,” the Austin Film Festival recognizes the talent and creativity of the written word and those who do it well.
To understand the growth and prestige of the Austin Film Festival in the film making industry, all one has to do is look back to the 2013 Austin Film Festival to find that 12 Years A Slave and Dallas Buyers Club – both having won three Oscars each – were included in screenings of that year’s festival. WOW!
The Austin Film Festival includes an assorted blend of film screenings, parties, question and answer sessions, lectures and learning opportunities.
Additionally, legendary, contemporary and soon-to-be famous film makers, writers, cast members and more will gather throughout the festival and conference to collaborate, celebrate and glean from the amazing excess of original inspiration!
Austin, Texas and its vibrant diversity is the perfect place to bring together the pinnacle of narrative, documentary and animated films…and the best part is that top-notch industry leaders share their knowledge and insight!
Tickets are still available if you are interested in attending this year’s festival and conference. For more information about ticket prices, festival and conference schedules and movie screenings; please go to www.austinfilmfestival.com.
