The Show

Did you watch it with your family on Saturday nights? Were you hooked from the beginning when a young(ish) Willie Nelson took the stage and entered your living room in 1975? Or was it Wilco’s performance in 1999 that blew your mind? Have you been to a taping yourself? ….What’s your AUSTIN CITY LIMITS memory?

The Documentary

A SONG FOR YOU: The Austin City Limits Story, compiles interviews, never before seen backstage footage, pivotal bookings and memorable moments to tell the story of the iconic AUSTIN CITY LIMITS TV show from its beginning with Willie Nelson, to where it is today― hosting music legends and premiering the music legends of tomorrow. 

This documentary is the ultimate archive on the impact AUSTIN CITY LIMITS has had on our appreciation and passion for music. A SONG FOR YOU meets the people behind their celebrity stardom to show that musicians are fans too, reaching for blissful musical experiences. 40 years in the making. Over 800 performers. And here we have it: Your front-row seat and backstage pass.

                    

So what are we doing on Kickstarter and why are we looking to raise $125,000? Well, after a successful premiere at this year's SXSW Film Festival and our Director, Keith Maitland, named in Variety as one of "10 Documakers To Watch," we want to complete and distribute this film so we can share this experience with all of you. 

Complete a film that's already made, you ask? Yes. We have over 70 songs within our 96 minute documentary and we need to pay for the music rights and archival footage to share on a grander scale. You also may wonder why AUSTIN CITY LIMITS needs financial support for the film. This film was made independent of PBS and any corporate sponsors, which is why we are turning to our friends and fans of AUSTIN CITY LIMITS.

We have just 30 days to raise 125K!Kickstarter is an ALL OR NOTHING platform, which is why we need all of you and your support.

 All donations (beyond the value of any reward received) are tax deductible through our fiscal sponsor, KLRU, a non profit organization based in Austin,TX. If you'd like to invest more deeply in the project, email Tom Gimbel at tgimbel@klru.org. He'd love to talk with you!

What is AUSTIN CITY LIMITS?

The short answer is: AUSTIN CITY LIMITS is a music performance television show that appears weekly on PBS.

The longer answer is that AUSTIN CITY LIMITS is the longest-running music program in television history, the only television show to have been awarded the Presidential Medal of the Arts (for achievement in the arts) and was recently recognized by TIME magazine as one of the 10 most influential music programs of all time. AUSTIN CITY LIMITS is a show that’s presented a huge variety of musical styles and genres, hosting everyone from Willie Nelson to BB King to Foo Fighters and a show that’s been enshrined as a Rock & Roll Landmark in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

An Emmy-nominated director of feature documentaries, director Keith Maitland and his team at Go-Valley immersed themselves in the 40 years of AUSTIN CITY LIMITS music history. At the same time, they embedded with the AUSTIN CITY LIMITS production team to capture behind-the-scenes, backstage, rehearsal, and performance moments with the incredible artists who graced the AUSTIN CITY LIMITS stage in Season 40 to create the ultimate fans’ digest of the longest running music program on TV. 

A SONG FOR YOU is the AUSTIN CITY LIMITS documentary, chronicling the story of the show’s conception, transformation and enduring success.

Keith Maitland (Director/Producer) - 2016 marks the release of two feature docs from Keith Maitland. Both A SONG FOR YOU: THE AUSTIN CITY LIMITS STORY as well as TOWER, a feature documentary about the 1966 University of Texas tower shooting premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival. His previous film, THE EYES OF ME, a year-in-the-life of four blind teens, premiered at SXSW in 2009, broadcast on PBS' Independent Lens and was honored with a Barbara Jordan Media Award by the State of Texas. Maitland is a director of documentary features, commercials, and TV series; his credits also include 7 seasons with NBC's LAW & ORDER as an assistant director. 

Sarah Wilson (Producer/Camera) returned to her hometown of Austin, Texas after nine years of studying and working in New York City. A documentary and commercial photographer as well as Director of Photography for documentary films, Wilson's clients include the The New York Times Sunday Magazine, Time, HGTV, The Atlantic Monthly, Texas Monthly, Mother Jones among others. 

Susan Thomson (Producer) spent over 12 years as a media consultant in Dallas, Los Angeles and London, with roles in strategy, operations and distribution at Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Really Useful Group", and the BBC. Susan co-founded and co-produces FilmMatters, a dialogue that focuses on the use of film to encourage social change. 

Hillary Pierce (Coordinating Producer) After several years working in the film and television industry in her native North Carolina, Hillary began her documentary career in NYC at Maysles Films under the tutelage of Direct Cinema pioneer Albert Maysles. While earning her MFA in Documentary Film at Wake Forest University, Hillary assisted faculty member and Kartemquin filmmaker Peter Gilbert teaching Visual Storytelling. She produced and directed THE ONE WHO BUILDS, a documentary about Dr. Omer Omer, once a Sudanese refugee, now an American citizen who is paying it forward as the director of a refugee resettlement organization in the American South. The film won Best Short Documentary awards at both Kansas City Film Fest and Boston International Film Festival and is currently on a university screening tour. Now based in Austin, Texas, she writes and produces non-fiction projects, joining Go-Valley in 2014.

Austin Reedy (Editor) is an Austin, TX based editor, who has worked on several independent films and television series that have shown on PBS, A&E, Discover, History and TLC.
