Organization description:
The Austin Film Society promotes the appreciation of film and supports creative filmmaking. Founded in 1985 by director Richard Linklater, the Austin Film Society has screened thousands of rarely seen films in Austin, Texas, and supported hundreds of Texas filmmakers with cash grants, fiscal sponsorship, rough-cut screenings and general advice and referral. AFS also runs the Austin Studios, a five-stage professional film studio in Austin that provides production space for large and small film and TV productions.
