At a secret location in Austin, there's a huge 35mm film archive known as the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA), containing the rarest and wildest exploitation titles in cinema history! Every month, we open up the archive to showcase a Deep Track you've never heard of, host a Reel One Party film inspection screening, or present an all-night rager based on a section of the collection that is simply begging to be explored!
All the proceeds from any and all AGFA events go directly to the archive, in support of its mission too raise awareness of the importance of genre cinema through collection, conservation, and distribution. Past AGFA screenings include: an all-night Hong Kong cinema marathon, Norman Mailer's one-of-a-kind pastel noir TOUGH GUYS DON'T DANCE, and the world's only superhero movie-musical, starring Alan Arkin and Christopher Lee, THE RETURN OF CAPTAIN INVINCIBLE -- and that's naming only a very few of our recent offerings.
AGFA is a non-profit film archive that counts among its board members and advisors the Alamo Drafthouse founders Tim and Karrie League and programmers Lars Nilsen, Zack Carlson, Joe Ziemba, and Sam Prime, who oversees the operations and development of the archive.
