The Austin Micro Short Film Festival 2019 will screen 200 international independent micro short films between 1-6 minutes in length at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lakeline on Sunday September 15, 2019. At our first event in 2018, we screened 80 films for over 300 attendees in Austin, Texas. For the 2019 program, two different, three hour sessions will screen micro short films of all genres including Drama, Documentary, Action, Comedy and Animated Films. Tickets for this event are available on Eventbrite via donation. Any dollar amount that you donate for your tickets, helps to support the venue rental fees for this event. Your donation also gives local and international filmmakers an opportunity to screen new films on the Film Festival Circuit for the Austin audience. Most of these films have never been screened in the state of Texas. Please join us for this fast-moving, independent film experience.
