Austin Film Society Film Grants

Once a year, the Austin Film Society (AFS) awards grants to emerging film and video artists in the state of Texas through our Texas Filmmakers' Production Fund (TFPF). Since 1996 the Austin Film Society has awarded 314 grants, totaling over $1 M in cash and over $100 K in goods and services to 293 projects.

In addition to grants for production, post-production and distribution, we have disbursed $21 K in stipends to Texas filmmakers traveling to prestigious film festivals through its Texas Filmmakers' Travel Grant program.

Awards are provided to artists whose work shows promise, skill, and creativity. Grant recipients have shown their films at renowned festivals like Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, Tribeca, Slamdance and SXSW and have been nominated for Gotham Awards, won Independent Spirit Awards and Student Academy Awards. Several have been released theatrically or in the cable and home video markets. The Austin Film Society is proud to support these Texas filmmakers making their mark in the world.
