Austin Film Society Film Grants

The Austin Film Society 2010 Texas Filmmakers’ Production Fund (TFPF) and Travel Grant programs gave away a total of $111,000 in cash and goods and services to 33 projects from emerging Texas filmmakers. AFS has now given out over $1.1 million to 293 film and video projects since the program began in 1996.

We award grants once a year to emerging film and video artists in the state of Texas through our Texas Filmmakers' Production Fund. Since 1996 the Austin Film Society has awarded 290 grants, totaling $940,000 in cash and $92,000 in goods and services to 272 film and video projects. Previous TFPF grant recipients are listed here. Additionally, AFS has disbursed $14,500 in small stipends to Texas filmmakers traveling to prestigious film festivals through its Texas Filmmakers' Travel Grant program.

TFPF recipients have shown their films at renowned festivals like Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, Tribeca, Slamdance and SXSW and have been nominated for Gotham Awards and 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.

Awards are provided to artists whose work shows promise, skill, and creativity. Every August, an independent panel of highly esteemed professionals from the national film community convene in Austin to review applications and administer awards. Award announcements are posted on our website at the conclusion of the panel session and grant disbursements are made in early September.

Every spring, AFS partners with local film organizations and festivals in major Texas cities to offer free informational workshops on how to apply to TFPF. In 2010, AFS visited Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Corpus Christi, Denton and Austin.
