Austin Film Festival Reader Opportunity

July 11, 2022

Austin Film Festival is looking for volunteers to join our team of readers for the 2022 Script Competition! Every year we recruit the best readers to help us find the most promising up and coming writers to bring into the fold. We see it as a great way to not only add valuable experience to your resume, but also a way to help encourage other writers through constructive feedback - which we know writers don’t always get.

Ideal candidates should be voracious readers who are well-versed in the basics of screenwriting and have a keen sense for analyzing a story. The team of volunteer readers will help us evaluate the submitted material and have a hand in deciding what moves forward in the competition. Additionally, every individual who reads for the competition accumulates points per script through the reader process that will go towards a gifted Film Pass or Badge to our 28th Annual Austin Film Festival this fall.

If you or any of your colleagues/peers are interested, please contact us at for more information.
