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 summer 2021 reopening!

Help us reach our $150,000 crowdfunding goal and you’ll receive special perks and gifts as a thank you, including AFS memberships, limited-edition t-shirts, and more. This is your opportunity to be a part of bringing back the AFS Cinema as Austin’s essential, central home for film—and donations at every level make a difference!

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

The Inner Circle is AFS’s exclusive giving circle for philanthropically minded film lovers.
