Austin Revolution Film Festival

Austin, Texas / September 18-22, 2018 / austinrevolution.com 

With an acceptance rate of more than 10 percent and a firm “no programming by any other means but submissions” policy, Austin Revolution Film Festival is proudly unpretentious, with a working class approach that favors bare bones productions over other fest runners’ oft-courted “Hollywood indies.” In that same spirit, ARFF’s 2017 edition presented 125 awards to a class of 125 films, ensuring that most, if not all, programmed features were in the running to bring home rodeo-style awards (some named after treasured alumni) for achievements in their respective categories. Currently the best reviewed festival on Film Freeway, passionate word of mouth keeps this little Texan indie hub that could growing strong.

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
