    Austin Film Society
    The Austin Film Society began in 1985 with a group of friends getting together to watch films that weren't distributed to the general public. As word got out, that small group of cinephiles turned to hundreds and the Austin Film Society (AFS) was born, honoring classic and independent film with screenings in venues all over Austin. As a non-profit educational organization, ASF features programs that have been curated to present films on a regional level within an artistic and cultural context.

    CineFestival
    CineFestival en San Antonio is the nation’s original and longest-running Latino film festival. Each Spring some of the best in contemporary U.S. and International Latino films screen at the Guadalupe Theater in San Antonio. The eight day program boasts world, regional, and U.S. premieres culminating with the Premios Mesquite honoring the festival’s stand out entries in documentary and narrative filmmaking.
