Join us for a free screening of doc shorts created in Austin School of Film's 10-week intensive Documentary Filmmaking production course— led by scholar, educator, and award-winning Documentary Filmmaker, Tania Romero!

All short docs featured completed in our 2019 summer session of Documentary Filmmaking - a production project-based course. If you are interested in learning more about the class, instructor, or the experience of real-life students who completed the course, this is a great opportunity to learn, network, and empower media makers in our community.

Over the course of 10-weeks, two labs, and multiple production shoots, students created short documentaries highlighting their experience as emerging filmmakers and artists through new work and short films. Works extend a variety of topics and showcases the rich diversity of our student community.

Come hear the stories of those who live, work, and breathe in the Lone Star State.

The screening starts at 8pm with Q&A with filmmakers to follow.

• Free & open to the public • Audience participation encouraged •

Motion Media Arts Center is a 501c(3) non-profit independent film, art, and technology center that supports every aspect of production from creation to presentation located in East Austin and founded in 2002 by a collective of artists + educators. Our goal is empower, support and educate emerging artists of all ages to be active participants in shaping our culture and engage communities to rethink the way we view film, art and technology. We provide alternative ways to work, learn, create, and consume the arts in the digital era.

We do this through our programs Austin School of Film providing over 500 classes year round in art, film and creative technology and Austin Cinemaker Space - Austin's only non-profit low-cost coworking makerspace for artists and creatives.


We serve 25,000+ people year-round and 67% require financial assistance to access education, resources, creative space to build successful nows & futures. Our #1 objective is to continue to help pave pathways for future generations to work, learn and create.

We are a dedicated to the belief that the arts can be--and is--a financially accessible both in and outside of the classroom. To learn more about our non-profit and ways you can help, visit our home website at:
