Starting Wednesday August 1st, and every Wednesday in August, 5% of all sales at EcoClean will be donated to AFS. Individuals can make a difference for AFS and for the future of film in Austin by patronizing EcoClean any Wednesday this month.
IT’S A COMMUNITY EFFORT!
The PROPS program not only recognizes the people and organizations making a difference in Austin, it also gives our customers the ability to contribute every week. We commit to giving the 5%, but it’s up to our customers and the community members who hear about the program to come in with their cleaning to make a difference and ultimately increase the donation.
AUSTIN FILM SOCIETY — their tag line says it all: MAKE WATCH LOVE FILM. AFS is a non-profit organization that promotes the appreciation of film and supports creative media production. AFS achieves its mission by exhibiting rarely seen films, providing financial support to regional filmmakers, offering film education programs to youth and adults, and attracting creative media productions to Austin and other locations throughout Texas.
What began in 1985 as a small group of cinephiles getting together to watch and discuss independent under-distributed films has become a powerhouse of support for film and digital projects. They work with all budget levels and types of productions: feature film, television, commercials, music video, and digital video. Their credits include TRUE GRIT, GRINDHOUSE, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, SECONDHAND LIONS, THE LIFE OF DAVID GALE, PREDATORS, THE LYING GAME, MACHETE and MISS CONGENIALITY. They have also hosted photo shoots for Entertainment Weekly, Texas Monthly, and NBC Universal and hosted commercial productions for Bud Light, Nike, L’Oreal, and Hallmark.
