AFS Cinema

The AFS Cinema—the home for all who love the very best in classic, foreign, and new independent film—is preparing for a July 15, 2021 reopening! While our crowdfunding campaign is now closed, we are still offering special opportunities for supporters of the AFS Cinema as we reopen. Learn more about our Next Picture Show campaign and donate today.

Filmmaker Support

AFS is here to ensure that independent film artists can work, create, and thrive in Texas by providing financial support and professional development resources. In response to the effect the pandemic has had on our community of filmmakers, we refocused our efforts and redirected our resources towards the AFS Grant. We continue to offer accessibly priced online classes for media creators while preparing to reopen Austin Public for our community. 

Your support sustains AFS programs while we work towards reopening the AFS Cinema, and ensures Austin filmmakers have the resources they need to work when funds for independent media projects are more scarce than ever.

Inner Circle Membership
