Austin Film Meet

The Austin Film Meet is Central Texas’ premiere video and film industry networking mixer. Our events are typically free to attend. Monthly mixers are typically held on the first Monday of every month at Stompin’ Grounds on South Congress. Additional mixers and specialized events are held throughout the year.

Upcoming Events include:


Austin Film Meet February Mixer
Monday, March 4, 2013 @ 7-9pm

Full details at:

Calling all filmmakers, video professionals, actors, producers and anyone involved in the central Texas film industry.

An Open-Mic session will begin at 7:15pm. This is your chance to introduce yourself and tell us what you do and how you can help. Or tell us about your project and how we can help. Or tell us about your recent career milestone or film accomplishment. We’re here to listen. Please keep your words to 90 seconds. (If we have 30 people, it takes nearly an hour.) Practice what you’re going to say. 90 seconds goes faster than you think it will.

Don’t forget your business cards & come introduce yourself!

    I’m a student interested in film. I’m working on a marketing degree then I’d like to get my MFA in creative producing. I have always loved fim and really want to get some experience. Is your group for someone like me or do I need more experience under my belt? Thanks so much!

    An overzealous POGS player is challenged by the richest kid in school and plans to defeat him to win over the affection of his Jr. High crush.

    It’s a short at 11 pages.

    I live in the DFW area but visit austin regularly, I have a script I would want to be produced by others as long as I get “written by” credit. Tried to direct this myself but it involves a large child group cast and in the DFW area it can be very hard to work around busy schedules, especially with parents and the kids. Would rather place this script, which I am proud of, in more experienced hands.

    Thank you,

    Hello Austin Film Meet,

    I am hoping to utilize my musical talents for film scoring and synchronization. I have already had a few songs featured in several indie films, but I want to take it a step further. Would this be an appropriate venue for me to visit and become involved in? Thank you.

    • H.Cherdon Bedford

      Hey Erica,

      Yes! The Austin Film Meet is a great place to let the local film community know about your talents and skills. Bring your business cards and come to a mixer. We encourage you to get on the open-mic and introduce yourself and tell us briefly about your skills. We look forward to meeting you!

    Happy Friday!!

    We are hosting a breakfast with Suzanne Weinert tomorrow morning. Suzanne is a successful screenwriter, filmmaker and executive producer – one of the busiest in Austin – and such a delight to meet and work with (you will LOVE her). At this talk she will share her knowledge, take questions, and provide lots of insight into the writing, funding, making and distribution of film – all in the intimate atmosphere of the Red Building at Austin Studios (max seating of 30 people). Please click on the link below for more information:

    I am a 13yr old aspiring director & filmmaker looking to network with people making films now. I need to learn more about how to get my films off the ground. Is it possible for me to attend one of the Film Meets?

    • Paul McAniff

      The Austin Film Society has a program for young people who aspire to make films every summer. This would be a good place to start.

    • H.Cherdon Bedford

      Of course! We’d love for you to come. You should definitely come out to our next Austin Film Meet and introduce yourself on the open-mic. We’d love to meet you!
