Schedule:
6:30pm Aging Out
7pm Autism and Me
8pm intermission
8:15pm panel discussion, Q&A, winners announced
9pm short films

Why a film festival? Film and video raise awareness in a broader community about life with autism. Film 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. Films are made by autistic filmmakers or are about autism. Through film, you can tell your story.

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