Why a film festival? Through film and video we can raise awareness in a broader community about life with autism. Through film we can show a range of ages and abilities, challenges and triumphs, (however big or small), that living with autism can bring. Viewers can also witness the dedication and support needed to give individuals with autism the greatest chance of reaching their full potential. Through film, we tell our story.

All funds raised at the Autism Film Festival will stay here in Texas to support our mission of improving the lives of all affected by autism through free programming, information & support, education, advocacy, recreation, and community inclusion events.

*Films are suitable for teens and up, not recommended for children, due to the subject matter which includes overcoming suicidal thoughts, depression, and anxiety, as well as some mild violence which could be scary for young children

Tickets will be available at the door unless we fill theater capacity before the event, but the earlier you buy, the more you save! Tickets include viewing all films and entrance to the lobby reception which includes appetizers.
