Once a year, AFS awards grants to emerging film and video artists in the state of Texas through our AFS Grant (formerly known as the Texas Filmmakers' Production Fund, or TFPF). The Austin Film Society has now given out over $1.5 million to over 385 film and video projects since the program began in 1996. In addition to grants for production, post-production and distribution, we provide cash stipends to Texas filmmakers traveling to prestigious film festivals through its AFS Travel Grant program. Check out past grant recipients here.

Awards are provided to artists whose work shows promise, skill, and creativity. Grant recipients have shown their films at renowned festivals like Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, Tribeca, Venice, Rotterdam and SXSW and have been nominated for Gotham Awards, won Independent Spirit Awards and Student Academy Awards. Several have been released theatrically or in the cable and home video markets. The Austin Film Society is proud to support these Texas filmmakers making their mark in the world.

 

In AFS Grant Workshops we will review the application and answer questions about applying for film production funds from AFS.

In August, an independent panel of highly esteemed professionals from the national film community convene in Austin to review applications and administer awards. Award announcements are posted on our website at the conclusion of the panel session and grant disbursements are made in the fall.

Please email us at artistservices@austinfilm.org if you have any questions regarding the grant.

THANKS TO OUR 2013 AFS GRANT SPONSORS
