Note to Researchers

The Austin Film Festival began digitizing their conference recordings in 2012 when it received a TexTreasures Grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Part of the grant agreement required placing the digitized materials in a public archive, in this case the Wittliff Collections.

The Austin Film Festival prioritized digitization by date and topic, thus not all conference sessions are digitized. In addition, not all sessions are available for viewing online or in person; some are restricted due to copyright and privacy concerns. Listed here are recordings that are available online or on site at the archives.

The Austin Film Festival is continuing to digitize materials and we expect further donations.
