AFF IS HEADED TO NEW YORK ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5TH!
7:00PM – Panel
8:30PM – Reception
It is a truth widely acknowledged that no one goes into theatre to strike it rich as a playwright. As the creative landscape continues to grow within film, television, and new media, there are now more avenues for playwrights to truly make the world their stage. Join Austin Film Festival, the Writers Guild of America East, the Dramatists Guild of American, and The New School for a conversation featuring playwrights who have turned their passion for the stage into a valuable currency in other mediums.
Panelists will be announced and added here soon!
Check out our podcast from last year’s event in New York, “Playwrights in the Writer’s Room” featuring a panel of writers who have worked in both theatre and television. This discussion pulls back the curtain on how their experience as playwrights have positively affected their craft as writers for television. The podcast features Warren Leight, Adam Rapp, Beau Willimon, and Tracey Scott Wilson. Click here to listen.
This event is first come first serve therefore, this RSVP does not guarantee entry. Only the first 140 people on AFF’s RSVP list will be admitted. We recommend arriving at least one hour in advance in order to get into the event.
