Austin Film Project

is creating support for local Filmmakers

Simply put, we’re a group of filmmakers looking to help each other out. We’re focused on the promotion of the filmmakers in the smaller Austin film scene. We not only want to promote these filmmakers, but to encourage a collaborative environment and connect filmmakers in similar positions to establish an active positive community.

We run a Filmmaker of the Week program where we promote one of these artists throughout the week on our Instagram and Facebook, as well as through our blog.

To tie-in with that, we do monthly events (such as the Into the Scene series) to showcase these artists' work and encourage community, while promoting them to both the general public and potential collaborators on next projects.

We also help out many smaller local productions to get done, such as through access to resources (crew, cast, locations, etc.), help with producing and often times help and advice in distribution.

Most of our activity is through our Instagram page here:

Where will your money go?
Right now we're a really small team of two running practically everything: finding and processing submissions, writing the blog and copy for the posts, as well as the posting plan and managing social media. For the monthly events (soon to be two a month), even though we charge ticket prices we still loose a few hundred dollars per event. And that's not counting all the work that goes into making them possible and to the standards you've come to expect from them.

We both currently have full-time jobs to support ourselves and cover all the expenses involved with the AFP. This small additional source of income will allow us to pay other people to get some of the work off our hands (such as social media management and copy-writing) so we can continue to focus on growing and helping these filmmakers out. Especially how we provide assistance on many small productions we have found ourselves very short on time for anything else.

The backbone to every production. Sometimes these can be overlooked and very undervalued. But not to us!

We really know and appreciate just how important having some PAs on set really is. Most times, nothing can get gone without loosing a lot of time without you - and this is the exact case here.

A small but strong community. This will allow us to pay someone to ease off the time-consuming world that is managing social media and our Filmmaker of the Week program. Once that's being watched, we can concentrate on making some really special things happen!
