Austin Film Festival is pleased to announce the 13th annual Film & Food Fundraising Party, an evening dedicated to honoring Austin as both a nationally recognized thriving film industry and renowned culinary hotspot. Held in the glamorous and historic Driskill Hotel, this evening of specialty cocktails by Twin Liquors and innovative cuisine presented by some of Austin's most notable chefs, brings together Austinites and visitors alike to celebrate the arts. The silent auction presents the very best in luxury items, trips, and experiences.

Proceeds benefit Austin Film Festival's Young Filmmakers Program. The Young Filmmakers Program encourages students, ages 9-18, to explore their creativity and improve their literacy skills through the arts of screenwriting and filmmaking. Programs are offered free through AISD schools and partner organizations annually serving over 1,500 students in the Austin community and AFF grants more than 300 students and teachers scholarships to the annual Austin Film Festival & Conference. The program offers kids opportunities to share their creative work with peers, the public, and professional filmmakers and screenwriters. By introducing young people to the film industry, the program hopes to provide them new mediums to express their creativity, improve their communication skills, and benefit the entire arts community. Programs include Storytelling Through Film, Arts Education Outreach and AFF Summer Film Camp. Click Here for more information!
