Mission Statement

aGLIFF cultivates high-quality gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender filmmaking that enlightens, educates and entertains all our community by exhibiting and supporting the best in recent GLBT national, international and regional films and videos.

Description

The Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival (aGLIFF), a Texas 501c3 nonprofit organization, is the oldest and largest festival of its kind in the Southwest. The overall goals of the organization are:

  • To create positive and visible images relevant to gay and lesbian lives
  • To educate the community about gay and lesbian issues
  • To show and promote the best in gay and lesbian films and videos

The primary activities of aGLIFF occur during the festival held annually for 9 days during the months of September and October. The festival showcases features and shorts, mainstream and avant-garde. Symposia and panels have explored current political and social trends; and increasingly the festival serves as a venue for first-time filmmakers. Special shorts programs have focused on youth issues, adoption by gay and lesbian couples, Asian, Latin American, and African identity/cultural issues, and hate crimes against gays and lesbians.
