Austin Film Festival

Austin, Texas / October 24-31, 2019 / austinfilmfestival.com / A, S, P

Set in one of the most welcoming cities in the U.S., Austin Film Festival is a terrific showcase for any moviemaker looking to maximize their work’s commercial potential and kickstart a career. AFF is a networking juggernaut. Major distributors come not just to make deals, but to sit on festival juries with successful directors, screenwriters, and actors. Having your film selected by AFF means you’ll have PR firm Sunshine Sachs to bring attention to your work. AFF’s focus on screenwriting also makes it a perennial hotspot: Their Writers Conference is the largest convergence of screenwriters and media storytellers in the world, which, as Film Competition Director Rob Gonzalez explains, “consists of more than 175 panels, workshops, and roundtable sessions, all designed to help and inspire moviemakers at every stage of their careers.”

      I can assure you that the Beaufort International Film Festival held each February in Beaufort, SC is well worth the entry fee. See the recap here -https://vimeo.com/321820933
