Austin Film Festival furthers the art and craft of storytelling by inspiring and championing the work of writers, filmmakers, and all artists who use written and visual language to tell a story.
Admit it. Writers are sexy. Writers are dope. Writers buy pain and sell it as hope. And that, my friend, is how all stories find a heartbeat. Want to know more about how that formula works? Well, we’ve got a Film Festival & Writers Conference down here in Austin that will get you as close as you’ll ever get to that process, and the writers who do it best. Great movies, great television, great theater – it all begins with words and stories and the people who write them. And the AFF Writers Conference is where they all gather. And guess what – they share! It’s the greatest Festival ever if you want to be a screenwriter, a TV writer, a playwright, or a podcaster.
For 25 years now AFF has fired up its spotlight and pointed it directly where the Hollywood sun don’t always shine – the writer. We offer hundreds of films, TV premieres, and informative panels that will inspire you to the max and help you boost your own ideas. And there are parties and spirits galore in which to enhance or drown any emotion or reaction that manifests itself in you. Not to mention a ton of networking with other writers and filmmakers. (Yes, including the famous ones.) These opportunities are what make it all worthwhile and achievable when the circus leaves town. You’ll take home priceless knowledge and insight, and maybe even a few leads.
