Fact: We’re in an Indie Film Revolution.

The AUSTIN REVOLUTION FILM FESTIVAL was started by filmmakers who realized many festivals were only programming films with big stars. So they started their own fest, building a brand based on screening films and creating excellent networking opportunities for true indie filmmakers.

The Revolution Film Festival, in its 5th year, captures the indie film vibe of Austin by screening some of the coolest indies from around the world, in some of the coolest venues in town. We fill the void for truly independent films in the city of Austin, focusing on story first, and we strive to bring unique and truly independent voices to the Texas capital.

The Austin Revolution Film Fest’s independent spirit and attitude champion the indie filmmaker as the star, creating opportunities for press, networking and collaboration. Awards are given in 3 dozen categories across several genres, including features, shorts, web series, music videos as well as a screen writing competition for features and shorts. The prize? A very cool rodeo style belt buckle.

The Austin Revolution Film Fest has gained a great reputation from filmmakers and fans alike. Sold out screenings and repeat entries from alumni are a testament to this. The festival is run by filmmakers ensuring a high quality event and is sponsored by industry professionals such as FilmFreeway, InkTip, Final Draft & the Ambassador Global Group.
