If you check out our past panelist page and note all the successful writers/directors/producers/executives/agents that have attended in the past, and those we expect this year, you’ll be astounded. And if you bit the bullet and attend yourself you’ll be even more astounded at how open, giving, and personable all those professionals are to the registrants. Unlike most festivals where the rich and famous are up on stage behind ropes, our Festival prides itself in being a venue where everybody intermingles, shares, and becomes one. One big family of writers with the same dreams, fears, vulnerabilities, and struggles. Our Conference is a gold mine of sincere commiseration and useful advice. It can open doors to Hollywood connections, but more importantly it will open the doors to your heart and soul that make you a better writer. Even the most successful screenwriters will tell you they get as much out of coming to our Festival as you do.
Stay tuned for exciting announcements, we will continue to release confirmed panelists and updates about the schedule as the Festival gets closer!
We look forward to having you at this year’s Austin Film Festival. Please feel free to contact us at the office 1-800-310-FEST if you have any questions, we are happy to help!
