How to crash the AFF parties

Steven Devadanam of the Houston Press enlisted the help of AFF Screenwriters Conference Panelists Steve Faber and Bob Fisher (The Wedding Crashers) to compile a list of ideas that just might get you into an Austin Film Festival party this week. (Here's a list of all of the official AFF parties, which doesn't include the parties held by individual filmmakers.) Of course, an idea guaranteed to work is to buy an AFF Conference Badge at the Driskill Hotel, but you're welcome to read the article and see if you think the tricks will get you rubbing elbows with other partigoers. Be warned, however: now we know these tricks too.

The first party of the Festival is Film and Food during which Tennis Anyone? will be screening (at 6:30 p.m.) and star Donal Logue will be in attendance. Tickets are still available tonight at the Driskill; the party starts after the film at 8 p.m.
