If you weren't there for Film & Food tonight you missed one of Austin's swankiest parties. We'll share more about the event when we have photos available. For now let's just say that the movie in question (Tennis Anyone? with Donal Logue) won new admirers for its writer/director/star and charmed existing fans, who made sure he didn't want for attention during the "food" portion of the evening at the Driskill Hotel. Tennis Anyone? screens again on Saturday.
Film & Food is a unique event at the AFF in that, unlike the other parties, you can purchase tickets to it independently of the Screenwriters' Conference. It's a fantastic way to get a taste of that film festival glitz if your interest in screenwriting is limited.
Let's wrap things up for this entry with a couple of mentions of the AFF in the press:
» Donal Logue in town for the Austin Film Festival (KUT, includes a picture of Logue and our own John Merriman)
