Austin Film Festival’s Retrospective Screenings allow veteran screenwriters and filmmakers to present their own films or works that have inspired their careers.  The main function of the program is to connect the public and the filmmaker, open the dialogue between artist and audience, and provide a platform for film-lovers and makers to learn about classic films.

Guest programmers will present retrospective films followed by extended post-screening discussions on why these pieces were influential not only to their own work, but the landscape of cinema as a whole.

The aim is to introduce new audiences to great films by inviting contemporary filmmakers and screenwriters to present a film of their choice.
