We’re partnering with Dell Children’s Medical Center and Galaxy Highland 10 to bring you a special holiday screening in support of Dell Children’s Blood & Cancer Teen Infusion Room.
Join Austin Film Festival on Monday, December 12th for a special holiday screening of Trading Places with screenwriter Herschel Weingrod in attendance.
An evening filled with festive treats and surprises, don’t miss this holiday classic which will be followed by a post-film Q&A. Directed by John Landis and starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd, Trading Places follows a snobbish investor and wily street con artist who find their positions reversed as part of a bet by two callous millionaires.
Tickets for the event are donation based and all proceeds will go to support Dell Children’s Blood & Cancer Teen Infusion Room.
We’re also thrilled to offer a workshop on writing comedy with Hershel on Tuesday December 13th. As spaces are limited, we will be offering this to members for first access. Members -look out for details coming soon! If you want more information on AFF membership please visit or site[link] or give us a call at 1.800.310.FEST.
