From the latest masterworks from around the globe to miniature retrospective and themed series, AFS Arthouse programming keeps its eye on the pulse of the latest cinephile delights to bring you some of the most exciting film programming happening in Austin. AFS Arthouse is your chance to sample classics as well as see brand new releases from top auteurs. Arthouse programs are priced competitively, at $5 for AFS LOVE members, $8 for Make and Watch members, and $10 for the general public.
Our Essentials series is an opportunity for AFS members and the Austin community to sample key selections of Auteur-driven cinema from around the world. Drawing from the best of contemporary and classic world cinema, AFS Essentials includes important narrative features from around the globe (Essential Cinema), exciting new documentaries straight from the festival circuit (Doc Nights), challenging experimental films (Avant Cinema), new independent narrative films from the US and around the world (Best of the Fests), and rare finds from from television's golden past (History of Television). All Essentials programs are FREE for AFS Love members, $5 for MAKE and WATCH members, and $8 for the general public.
Every year AFS has the great pleasure of presenting premieres, special screenings and sneak previews. Past events have included premieres of films by Richard Linklater, Robert Rodriguez, Matthew McConaughey and Catherine Hardwicke. Member benefits vary but usually include a discount and always first dibs on tickets. You can see an archive of all the Premieres we've held or can see highlights from the past year below:
Our Artist Services department offers several opportunities for budding filmmakers to learn more about the industry. While some programs require an AFS MAKE level membership, others have general admission tickets available for purchase.
