Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival
aGLIFF entertains our community through the exhibition and support of the best in recent LGBTQ+ international, national, and regional films. The festival showcases features and shorts, in addition to mainstream, and avant-garde films. Festival events connect members of the community. Symposia and panels explore current political and social trends; and increasingly the festival serves as a venue for first-time filmmakers. Special shorts programs have focused on the issues faced by LGBTQ+ youth, immigration of LGBTQ+ people, gender identity and expression, adoption, marriage, military service, religion, racial identity, cultural issues, and hate crimes against LGBTQ+-identified people.
Programmed works may be eligible for the following award competitions: Best Narrative Feature, Best Documentary Feature, Best Documentary Short, Best Narrative Short and aGLIFF's "Humdinger" Audience Award.
Films selected to be in juried competition must be a Texas premiere, and conform to any additional requirements as described on the aGLIFF website.
All feature length films selected are eligible for Audience Award and other special awards.
