Austin Film Festival Seeks Film Screeners

Austin Film Festival is seeking short film screeners for the upcoming festival. In order to qualify, members are required to be at least 21 years of age, and will need to undergo a screener test. At AFF, storytelling is our focus; it’s the engine that has driven us towards this year’s 25th annual film festival.  So we require the screener test to determine the strength of a potential screener’s eye for quality and strong storytelling. If there’s any chance that your staff and/or members may be interested in this; we could work in tandem to explore some really bold horizons for everyone.  We think this could be a great opportunity for anyone at University Film & Video Association, so if feasible, please consider sharing it around.  If you know of anyone that would be interested in becoming a film screener, including former members; please feel free to share my contact information with them so they can reach out.  I can walk them through any desired additional details, and get them up and running in our system. 

Quick pointers for potential screeners:

       We aim to create a space where screeners can foster a more critical eye for what works, and conversely does not, in filmmaking.  What better way to learn about the craft itself, and the ins and outs of its fundamentals, than through the act of watching a breadth of films?  

       Every individual accumulates hours throughout the screening process that will go towards a gifted badge to our 25th annual festival this fall. 

       View films within our Academy Award Qualifying competition categories including: Animated Short, Documentary Shorts (which gave way to 2018 Academy Award winner; Heaven is a traffic jam on the 405).
