Once a year, 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 451 grants, totaling over $1.15 million in cash and over $100 K in goods and services to 351 projects. In addition to grants for production, post-production and distribution, we have disbursed $21,000 in stipends to Texas filmmakers traveling to prestigious film festivals through its Texas Filmmakers' Travel Grant program. Check out past TFPF 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, Cannes, Toronto, Tribeca, Venice 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.
2012 TFPF grant cyle will open in March
Deadline June 1st
