inspire youth to follow their dreams

"Austin Youth Film Festival is a dream come true for so many young filmmakers.  Without it, I wouldn't be where I am now, and I hope that I get to grow up and be one of those judges that I looked up to as a kid."

-Ryder Dunagan, 2016 AYFF Alumni and recent New York Film Academy graduate now working in production in Los Angeles
