Austin Film Festival / On Story Archive

The Austin Film Festival, a non-profit organization founded in 1994 and based in Austin, Texas, hosts an annual Austin Film Festival & Conference, a gathering of professional and amateur screenwriters and filmmakers to participate in panel presentations, parties, Screenplay and Teleplay Competitions, and screenings. It was the first event of its kind to focus on screenwriters and filmmakers, and refers to itself as “the writers’ conference.”

The Austin Film Festival mission states that, “Austin Film Festival furthers the art and craft of filmmaking by inspiring and championing the work of screenwriters, filmmakers, and all artists who use the language of film and television to tell a story.” Best known for its annual Festival, the Austin Film Festival also offers year-round events, a young filmmakers program, as well as On Story.

An extension of AFF’s programs, mission, and messaging, On Story offers inspiring and instructional curations from the entertainment industry’s leading writers, directors, and creatives. It serves to shine a light on these visionaries who, through the transformative power of storytelling, boldly reflect the best of humanity and, subsequently, inspire and instruct the next generation of storytellers.

The On Story Project houses six major components: a television series, podcast, radio show, book series, archive, and an all-encompassing website. The rich material captured at the Festival and year-round events is then curated into productions offered for free online and through public radio and television; preserved and archived at The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University; and edited into a multi-book series in partnership with The University of Texas Press. A mirror to the Festival’s organic, unfettered, story-driven experience, On Story provides high quality, inspirational and educational free content for any and all. It embodies the heart and soul of the on-the-ground programming, sharing AFF’s values and personality with the world at large.

The collection consists of audio and video media and digital files of recordings of Austin Film Festival Festival & Conference panel presentations. The recordings document the proceedings of the Conference. Panel topics include On Writing, Up Close and Personal, The Art of the Pitch, and many others. Notable panelists include Michael Ian Black, Sydney Pollack, Shane Black, Larry Wilmore, Jim Dauterive, Mike Judge, Oliver Stone, Harold Ramos, Judd Apatow, Bill Broyles, Bill Wittliff, John Lee Hancock, Barry Levinson, Neil Young, and Sam Elliot.

A listing of conference session recordings follows. The inventory is also available as a pdf, and in xml format.

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.
