We really believe in the mission of the Austin Revolution. We try to follow it in two ways.
- We focus on movies that are truly independent and that show a renegade spirit of making movies. We want the films that aren’t weighed down by budgets and are instead lifted by stories. We’re not against playing movies with a ‘big budget’ or names, but that is also not going to be a factor in whether we accept a film or not. Unpopular to say, but we believe in transparency.
- We are also recognizing a few films from populations or about topics that might miss the mainstream. They are revolutionaries in content! We’ll be honoring Veteran made films (or films with a veteran theme), LGBT movies and movies than deal with social issues.
