Austin Film Festival presents the 9th Annual Film & Food, one of the most fun and exciting culinary events in Austin. The glamorous and historic Driskill Hotel is the setting for this evening of flowing cocktails and inventive, delicious cuisine presented by some of Central Texas’ most notable chefs. Live and silent auctions offer attendees opportunities to bid on unique items and experiences.
Proceeds from the ticket sales and event auctions benefit AFF’s Young Filmmakers Program. The Young Filmmakers Program was founded to encourage students, ages 9 - 18, to explore their creativity and improve their literacy skills through the arts of screenwriting and filmmaking. Programs are offered free through AISD schools and partner organizations and grant more than 300 students and teachers access to the annual Austin Film Festival & Conference.
