It takes courage to tell a great story, because without risk, nothing great can happen. This is why Austin Film Festival and Hiscox Insurance are proud to present the inaugural Courage Award.
The Hiscox Insurance Courage Award will be presented to the film that best showcases the most courageous story.
Selected by the audience, the Hiscox Insurance Courage Award will be presented to the one film that best embodies the virtue of courage and to the filmmaker who best embraced the risk to share the story.
In addition, Hiscox Insurance is inviting Austin Film Festival’s 2015 filmmakers to write blog entries describing the trials and tribulations the filmmakers faced getting their films to this point.
