The Austin Film Festival begins this Thursday, and as it is the festival where I got my start "on the inside" of fests, it holds a special place in my heart. I'll be checking out the films, schmoozing at the parties, and of course rattling on about festivals, marketing, and film distribution at a few panels during the accompanying Screenwriters' (and filmmakers!) Conference. Here's where you can find me, and when: Thursday, October 22nd at 2:45 p.m. - It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over
Saturday, October 24th at 3:45 p.m. - Independent Productions: Marketing & PR
Sunday, October 25th at 2:30 p.m. - Independent Productions: Marketing & PR (moderating)
Check out the Austin Film Festival schedule for full info on the films and panels to see. You can also pick up a print copy of Film Festival Secrets at the merch table near registration.
