Our mission is to promote art and film in Texas, highlight local artists and film events, and inform our readers with unique critiques and interviews.  Texas Art & Film also focuses on theatrically release feature films, screen actors and professionals in the business of creating film.  

Texas Art & Film is a non-profit magazine focused on serving those who appreciate art and film.  This online magazine was founded in Galveston, Texas in 2009.

Since then TAF has become recognized in print, online and in broadcasting through our dedication and efforts to provide up to date reviews, interviews and content. Bringing Hollywood to the Third coast.

Joining with local and state wide affiliates like, CW39 NewsFix, The Galveston Daily News, The Island Guide, E-Guide and Galveston.com, TAF has been able to reach farther and grow substantially. Our film reviews and coverage now reach over 1 million readers, viewers and followers.
