Calling all Champions of Great Story Telling!






23rd Annual Austin Film Festival (AFF), known far and wide as "The Writer's Festival" and as a champion for great storytelling on the screen and on the page. In addition to over a dozen parties and over 150 film premieres, AFF hosts the world's largest Screenwriters Conference with panels, workshops, round tables, and conversations featuring over 150 working film, television, and new media industry professionals. AFF is also proud to pave the way to Oscar gold for short films - the Festival is an Academy-qualifier for narrative, documentary and animated short films.

 Agents, managers, television showrunners, studio execs, distributors, and filmmakers visit AFF again and again, not only to sample its unbeatable hospitality and great barbecue, but also to uncover and promote talents that deserve to be seen and heard. Along with excellent exposure comes the opportunity to take home a cash prize of up to $2,500 USD, travel and hotel reimbursement of up to $1,000, and AFF's famous bronze typewriter statue for winning filmmakers.
