  • Austin Film Festival

    October 24th, 2013

    I am SO thrilled that I will be a Moderator at this year’s Austin Film Festival! In its 20th year, there is no more fun film festival or screenwriting event than AFF! Movies, TV, Music, Food, Networking, Panels, Pitching – this one has it all.  I will be moderating a number of panels during the week. Details TBA.

    Built around one of the most prestigious screenwriting contests in the country, the Conference attracts groundbreaking producers, agents, managers, and development execs, as well as countless working screenwriters and filmmakers.

    Austin Film Festival & Conference didn’t attract such a fierce and faithful following by accident. Hitting its 20th anniversary this year, AFF is as devoted as ever to nurturing creativity in a rough-and-tumble business, serving as a greenhouse for projects and a clubhouse for the most discussed, prolific, outlaw, and legendary filmmakers and screenwriters in entertainment. This 20th Annual Festival & Conference will be historic. You don’t want to miss it.

    Founded in 1993 as the only organization of its kind to celebrate and investigate the writer’s role in filmmaking, AFF is famous for stirring up interaction between icons and newcomers-including producers, agents, managers, development executives, filmmakers, screenwriters, and registrants. Practically every first-time AFF participant has walked away saying: That’s unlike anything I’ve experienced or heard about.

    Many conferences are footnotes to festivals; the AFF Conference is worth the trip alone. The lineup is interactive, raw, and fun – you’re destined to leave with a notebook full of strategies. For the first time ever, this year’s Conference will feature additional panels, case studies, and workshops spread throughout the whole week. On top of that, panelists and awardees will serve as guest film programmers, sharing insight on films that have inspired them and helped shape their careers.

    The Conference covers basics like: researching and editing your story, creating and funding your film while somehow paying the rent, working with a writing partner, facing a blank page on a bad day, or risking a new direction after established success. Newcomers learn from veterans, and professionals trade war stories and get rejuvenated by fresh thinking. You’ll go from writing workshops led by your creative heroes during the day to late nights at the Driskill Bar where you’ll drink and eat side by side with those same panelists, the conversation practically uninterrupted.
