This morning, the Austin Film Society announced its formal call for entries to the 2013 AFS Grant (formerly known as the Texas Filmmakers' Production Fund).

All filmmakers who are Texas residents are eligible to apply for up to $15,000 for production, post-production, and distribution costs for their project. Since the fund's inception in 1996, 370 filmmakers have gotten $1.24 million from AFS, including half a dozen projects from the South by Southwest Film class of 2013 alone: Computer Chess, Pit Stop, The Retrieval, "Black Metal," Mud, Zero Charisma, and Before You Know It.

Applications are available at AFS' website and are due June 1. It's free to apply, and there's a grant prep workshop planned for May 2, 7pm, at the AFS screening room if you need help getting things in order.
