Austin Film Festival furthers the art and craft of filmmaking by inspiring and championing the work of screenwriters, filmmakers, and all artists who use the language of film and television to tell a story.
Austin Film Festival strives to be accessible to all patrons of the arts. While all of our Conference and Festival venues are wheelchair accessible, it is important to request accessible seating for a particular screening at least one day before the screening. As there are a limited number of available seats, waiting until walk-up or the day of the screening does not guarantee an accessible seat will be available. These requests can be made by calling Austin Film Festival at 800-310-FEST(3378).
Sign Language Interpreters
Sign Language Interpreters can be made available for the Conference. Interpreted panels are subject to the availability of an interpreter. Please call Austin Film Festival at 800-310-FEST(3378) to request.
Sign Language Interpreters are provided by LotuSIGN. LotuSIGN provides highly specialized American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting services to a diverse body of music venues, theaters, performance groups and panels. They also provide coordination, advocacy, training workshops and consultant services to festivals, conferences, theaters and interpreters across the United States. Their vision is to ensure access for the deaf and hard of hearing community by providing the best possible visual representation of an artist’s work.
