Head of Film and Creative Media,
Austin Film Society,
Lone Star Slate and AFS Grants
The Austin Film Society’s may have shut the doors to its AFS Cinema in March in response to the coronavirus pandemic but that does not mean the Austin Film Society is closed for business. The Austin Film Society is hosting virtual screenings of new films and has introduced its Lone Star Slate, a screening library of 11 Austin Film Society grant-supported Texas films (https://www.austinfilm.org/the-lone-star-slate/). The Austin Film Society also is now accepting grant applications from Texas-based filmmakers with narrative and documentary features in various stages of production or in development. The Austin Film Society also received good news earlier this month when it received a grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
