27 YEAR CLAPPER - header

About Us
aGLIFF- The Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival – was founded in 1987 and became a 501(c)3 in 1995. This year we celebrate 29 years of programming for the Austin community. aGLIFF has grown tremendously in size and scope from a short four-day run of four films primarily focused on coming out and AlDS to a multifaceted nonprofit organization with year-round community programs culminating in our annual film festival program with over 100 films depicting a myriad of issues across cultures, race, immigration status, class, gender identity and expression, age, and religion.

Our goals:

  • To create positive and visible film programs relevant to lives of LGBTQ+ identified people
  • To educate the community about LGBTQ+ issues
  • To produce and promote the best in LGBTQ+ community building events
  • To support and partner with other organizations to enlighten the public
