AFS’s Community Media department is happy to present this series, which offers the filmmaking community of Austin peer-level critiques of their work. We hold regular screenings of rough/fine cuts, followed by audience discussion and feedback. Sessions are moderated by experienced Austin filmmakers and audience members are expected to agree to confidentiality regarding the film and the feedback process.

Submissions are accepted on a rolling deadline. Once all short film slots have been filled, we will contact accepted filmmakers to determine the screening date.

Screenings are held in the evening at Austin Public’s Studio 1 (1143 Northwestern Ave).
