The Autism Society of Central Texas is excited to host our first ever Autism Film Festival at Alamo Drafthouse, with a party at The Highball, presented by Catapult and Microsoft. Party includes food, fun, karaoke, casino games, Paddles Up, and silent auction! All funds raised stay here in Central Texas to support individuals with autism.
Why a film festival? Through film and video we can raise awareness in a broader community about life with autism. The films show a range of ages and abilities, and the challenges and triumphs, (however big or small), that living with autism can bring. Viewers will also witness the dedication and support so many families provide to give individuals with autism the greatest chance of reaching their full potential. These films tell our story. All funds raised will stay here in Central Texas to support our mission of improving the lives of all affected by autism.
