About Our Auction

On November 4, 2018 the Autism Society of Texas is hosting our 3rd Annual Autism Film Festival. This event provides awareness and acceptance of individuals with autism, and provides funding so we can provide free supports, recreational opportunities, and information and referrals to families whose children have autism, or to adults with autism who are seeking services and support.

Autism Film Festival
Sunday, November 4, 2018, 4-9 pm
AFS Cinema, Austin, Texas

The Autism Film Festival will honor our Autism Stars that have helped pave the way for others newly diagnosed, and will raise funds towards expansion of our adult programming for employment, social skills, recreation and transitional services by funding the Hunter Hinze Adult Scholarship Fund.

With the prevalence of autism now at 1 in 59, the requests for help from our organization are increasing dramatically. In January 2017, we expanded from serving 24 counties in Central Texas, to becoming statewide. The Autism Society of Texas now provides free information & referrals for the entire state. We respond to thousands of inquiries each year about diagnosis, treatment, interventions, educational options, social services, and resources. We serve all ages and stages of autism.
