The Autism Society of Texas is excited to bring back our fourth Autism Film Festival, AutFest Texas, on September 13, 2020! Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, we have decided to change AutFest Texas: The Reel Deal in-person eent to AutFest At Home: The Sequel, a virtual film festival.
The films will be shown online during a live virtual film festival on September 13th, starting at 6:30pm. Join us in watching our 2020 sort film selections, the feature film, Aging Out, and a new feature documentary, Autism and Me. We’ll also have a live panel discussion and Q&A! The films will be available to watch for a week after the live event, until September 20th. Pop some popcorn, put on your most comfortable clothes, lay on the couch and enjoy some great films at home raising awareness about autism! To see a list of our selected short and feature films for AutFest 2020, click here.
*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
AutFest At Home: The Sequel Ticket: $20 (per household)
*Previously purchased Double Feature Tickets, AutFest At Home + AutFest: The Reel Deal, are valid and you do not need to purchase another ticket for AutFest At Home: The Sequel! Previously purchased tickets for only our April AutFest At Home event are not valid and another ticket will need to be purchased for AutFest At Home: The Sequel.

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. Films will be about autism or made by autistic filmmakers.
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.

Recognize others by purchasing screen space during the slide show before films begin and your “Star” will be honored on everyone’s screens! Register your Autism Star here!
