Can you promote my event/project to the Austin Film Meet audience?

While we would love to help everyone promote their projects, we wouldn't have time to do anything else, so we offer this only to active Austin Film Meet members. We also created several platforms where you can promote yourself to the Austin Film Meet audience. Of course, if you still want our help with promotion? Please consider Sponsorship.
How can I promote my self/film/project to the Austin Film Meet group?
I need people for my project. Can you refer people for me?
We typically receive multiple requests a day asking us to provide referrals. At this time, we are not able to provide referrals for individuals who are not paying members of our organization. Instead, we provide opportunities to help you connect with our community. The best way to find people, is to attend a mixer and tell us what you need on the open-mic. If you are unable to attend, we recommend these other opportunities for connection.
