Tomorrow is the last day to get your film submission postmarked for consideration at the Austin Film Festival, one of the world's largest and most prestigious events dedicated to the craft of cinematic storytelling. (And I don't just say that because I used to work there!)
If the lure of a laid-back film festival in one of the world's most dynamic cities isn't enough, pile on the festival's Screenwriting Conference, which features intimate conversations and workshops with working screenwriters like Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3), John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), and David Simon (The Wire). (Personally I'm looking forward to hearing from Jon Lucas, who wrote The Hangover.)
Naturally attending a festival like this one is better (and cheaper) when you're a participating filmmaker, so get your film in today. Details on submitting to the festival can be found on the AFF web site.
