The Attic Film Festival (TAFF), the only local, Austin, Texas, film festival to showcase independent, Christian-based films of faith, hope and redemption, has announced their lineup of films for their 2014 Festival. The film festival will take place at the Alamo Drafthouse, Lakeline location, on April 4th through 5th. It will showcase 28 films including documentaries, shorts, full-features and animated films. The films will be presented in blocks. Ticket prices range from $10 to $15 for reserved seating and $45 for an all-access pass.

Dr. Jamee Kennedy, Executive Director of The Attic Film Festival, said, “The films featured at the 2014 Attic Film Festival are some of the most well-done, quality-driven, inspirational films that we have received in the history of the festival. And we’ve had a very difficult time selecting the 28 films we’re showing, out of hundreds that we’ve received this year. The audiences will be very pleased; it’s something that not only Austin Christians should not miss, but film enthusiasts as well. Kennedy continues, “...from films about Austin, Texas Reagan High School Football team (Where We Belong), to Jeremy Lin pro-basket ball player (Linsanity) to popular Christian band, Switchfoot (Fading West), audiences will surely connect with these characters and leave with a great message.”
“The Attic Film Festival is the perfect place for Linsanity, the story of pro basketball athlete Jeremy Lin, to screen...” said Brian Yang, director of Linsanity. “We’re thrilled and blessed to be a part of this year’s line-up and can’t wait to share the story with everyone in Austin.”
In addition to the films, The Attic Film Festival will hold Q&A sessions with the films’ casts and crews. Winners of the following award categories will be announced on April 3, 2014 at The Attic Film Festival’s Family Filmmaker Dinner and Awards at Threadgills, downtown at 7 P.M.

The Attic Film Festival (TAFF), a Christian-based film festival, headquartered in Austin, Texas, was formed from humble beginnings at Grace Covenant Church in Austin where the Youth Group was challenged to express their faith cinematically. TAFF, a non-profit 501-C (3), was established in 2007 and opened the festival screening with 12 films and 4 volunteers. Since then, the TAFF award-winning films have gone on to receive worldwide recognition including Academy Award nominations. TAFF supports and empowers independent filmmakers to spread Christ’s message through film. It is TAFF’s sincere prayer that the films screened will honor Christ and His message of forgiveness and love for all and bless those watching them. Visit online.
