Our 3rd annual Autfest will be held on September 14, 2019 at the AMC Theaters in Orange, California. This year, we would especially like to feature films related to the dynamics of autism among siblings and other family members. The Autism Society and the Autfest Committee are now seeking nominations for films and documentaries for 2019.


Specifically, we are seeking:


  • Films that present story lines about autism within the family dynamic.

  • Films which have been written and/or directed by individuals on the autism spectrum.

  • Films that have an individual on the autism spectrum in a lead role.

  • Documentaries on issues related to autism.


Beginning on Monday, May 14, through Friday, June 14, 2019, nominations for films or documentaries addressing any or all of the above four categories can be made using the online nomination form.


If you wish, you may nominate or self-nominate any film that meets the above categories. Decisions will be made by August 15, 2019.
