Austin Film Festival (AFF) was founded in 1994 and was the first organization of its kind to focus on writers’ creative contributions to film. Initially, AFF was made up of the Heart of Film Screenwriters Conference and functioned to launch the careers of screenwriters, who historically have been underrepresented within the film industry. Since then, AFF has grown to serve all filmmakers and has helped Austin’s arts community by creating year-round programming that recognizes the art and value of storytelling through film. Today AFF supports the work of aspiring and established writers and filmmakers by providing unique cultural events and services, enhancing public awareness and participation, and encouraging dynamic and long-lasting community partnerships.


There will be 180 plus screenings and the conference will be host to over 100 speakers — panels, roundtables. The X-Files Chris Carter is set to receive the Outstanding Television Writer Award this year. He will be joined by Paul Feig and Brian Helgeland at the “Highly Regarded Filmmakers” program, where they will discuss old films and Carter will present a special X-Files screening of the episode Millennium.
