Celebrating autism awareness “from spectrum to screen,” AutFest, the first film festival solely dedicated to an autism audience and filmmakers will take place this weekend, April 22-23, 2017. The first Annual AutFest International Film Festival will honor Oscar-winning director, actor, and filmmaker Ben Affleck and Oscar-winning Pixar Animation Studios’ filmmakers, Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera, for their cinematic portrayals of the complexity of human emotions in The Accountant and Inside Out.

On-hand to honor Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera will be AutFest Honorary Committee member, Ed Asner (who voiced Carl from UP), after the sensory-friendly screening of the film.
