Austin Lift-Off Film Festival

A Lift-Off Film Festival in one of the worlds best cities for filmmakers

Voted as one of the best cities for filmmakers, Austin’s raging eclectic cultural scene and bustling capital city makes it a hub for the region’s creative media ecosystem. Making a name for itself by competing for Oscars with “Boyhood” and the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival, it was a no brainer for us to choose Austin as host for our Film Festival. With a large and welcoming community in the region and possessing an authenticity that filmmakers crave, we are eager to celebrate work from Texas and beyond!

Austin Film Festival is a new addition to our long-standing festival circuit and we are excited to attract the next generation of filmmakers into the Lift-Off Network family. Not only is our festival a global showcase for filmmakers looking to take those next steps into the creative community but we also want to encourage them to take advantage of the positive influences, inspiration and opportunitues that the Lift-Off community has to offer.

Not only is our festival a global showcase for filmmakers looking to take that next step, we provide a free service where we take your work to the major film markets AFM, Cannes, EFM etc... All with the aim of getting your work acquired by distributors.
