channelAustin is excited to announce the kickstarter campaign the filmAccess THIS.
We need your support to finish this feature-length documentary about the vibrant 40-year history of public access television that began in Austin, Texas. This film features the unique tales of people who have shared their stories and lives with the Austin Community though public access television.
Please help us out by spreading the word about this campaign or by becoming a backer today.

Wayne’s World doesn’t do justice to the entirety of the public access experience. Wayne’s World may have focused national attention on public access but true indie filmmakers like Richard Linklater and Robert Rodriguez owe the earliest beginnings of their careers to public access in Austin.
Operated and managed by nonprofits since 1973, channelAustin’s contract with the City of Austin allows the organization to air content on three broadcast channels, including channel 10-the longest continually running public access channel in the country.
It is our dream to share Access THIS with the world and we appreciate your help in getting us there.
