AFS Classes & Workshops

Austin Film Society staff will be hosting a workshop on Zoom to inform and answer questions about the 2022 AFS Grant for Feature Films – Narrative Feature Focus, which will be accepting applications beginning April 18. Please join us to learn about new grant opportunities, the application and review processes, and ask your project-specific questions.


Since its inception in 1996, the AFS Grant has awarded over $2.2 million in cash grants and more than $400k in-kind goods and services to 425+ Texas filmmakers, creating life-changing opportunities for artists traditionally underrepresented in the film industry and working outside large industry centers. In addition to grants for development, 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, Berlin, Cannes, Toronto, Tribeca, Venice, Rotterdam, and SXSW and have been nominated for Gotham Awards, won Independent Spirit Awards and Student Academy Awards. The Austin Film Society is proud to support these Texas filmmakers making their mark in the world.

For each cycle, an independent panel of esteemed professionals from the national film community convene 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 afterward.

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