The Fall Film Event You Can't Afford to Miss!

"Aspiring and professional writers and filmmakers get their day in the sun at this 15-year-old festival held in Texas' dynamic arts capital."- Hollywood Reporter June 26, 2008

Join us for the 15th Annual Austin Film Festival, October 16-23, 2008 - deep in the heart of Texas' capital!

Newly noted on Hollywood Reporter's list of "can't-miss events on every filmmaker, distributor, buyer and cinephile's fall calendar" the Austin Film Festival offers something for everyone.

Whether it's screening ground-breaking competition ("Shotgun Stories", "Kabluey") and non-competition films ("Juno", "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead", "The Diving Bell & The Butterly", "Chicago 10") to hosting intimate panels with influential and award-winning screenwriters and directors (newly confirmed for '08 - Robert Townsend, Terry Rossio, and Kirsten Smith) - 8 days doesn't seem like enough to fully experience all the fest has to offer with its films, workshops and parties.

I loved going to the Austin Film Festival when it was younger and still growing. It was amazing and exciting and like nothing one could imagine. I was last there a few years back. When the great Sydney Pollack was there. In fact, met him crossing the street. Cool. Nice man. I was fortunate to have met him. But my feelings about the AFF have lessened somewhat. Now it is like a big business where you get a number and pay a fortune and hope for hope but leave empty. I am not sure I will ever returned and this makes me sad, in a way. I am happy for the festival's success but sad it got so big it minimalized my interest in it. Good luck with your continued growth.
