» When it comes to getting into screenings at the Austin Film Festival, the rules are pretty simple:
- Badge holders ($95 and up) get in first (30 minutes before showtime),
- followed by Film Pass holders ($35),
- followed by those people who buy individual tickets.
» Panels and parties are open only to those festivalgoers who buy a badge. A day badge admits you to Conference panels on Saturday, a weekend badge to Saturday and Sunday panels. A Conference Badge admits you to all of the panels and some of the parties, while an all-access Producer's Badge gets you in to all the Festival events (with the exception of the Awards Luncheon) from October 19th - 26th - the WGAE Opening Night Party, the Film Texas BBQ, the Hair of the Dog Brunch, and more. A full list of parties, including the pre-Festival "Film and Food" benefit, can be found here.
