Austin Film Festival will present 8 days of film across 7 venues, October 25 – November 1. Purchase your Austin Film Festival Film Pass at the Long Center Box Office!

There are a plethora of terrific films to be seen and consumed at AFF, many that will be on the verge of release, and that you’ll later discover are Oscar® nominees. (You can tell your friends, “I saw it before it opened, at Austin Film Festival, sucka!”) You’ll look at the eight-day film schedule and feel like an eight-year-old at an Amy’s Ice Cream counter. So many movies, so little room! Lordy, what on earth do I choose? AFF will be screening film and television premieres galore, plus competition films, documentaries, script readings, etc. with all-star line-ups and Q&As by your favorite writers, actors and filmmakers.

  • Film Passes are now on sale, available for purchase in person at the Long Center Box Office for $65 (plus processing fee) and then increase to $75 (plus processing fee) on September 22nd.
