TWITCH IS BACK!
We’re reopening our Twitter feed to current AFF film, script, or digital series entrants* who would like to pitch their projects in 140 characters or less. All participants will receive a $10 discount code for our Coverage Program via Direct Message on Twitter and one winner will be personally selected by Guardians of the Galaxy writer Nicole Perlman aka @Uncannygirl! The winner will receive a private phone consultation with Nicole to pick her big, wonderful brain about how to navigate a career in the film industry. In addition to being a wonderful human being, Nicole has previously participated as our Pitch Competition Finale Judge at last year’s Festival and has confirmed to judge the Final Round of this year’s Screenplay Competition in the Comedy category.
*This competition open to screenplay and film competition entrants only
How To Enter:
1.) The Twitch Competition is ONLY open to entrants in this year’s Screenplay, Digital Series, or Film Competitions. If you haven’t entered your script or film yet, visit our submission page HERE.
2.) Follow us on Twitter @AustinFilmFest
3.) Write your tweet and end it with #AFFtwitch. The pitch can be for anything – It does not have to be for the project you submitted to AFF or even written yet. It can be a feature, a short, or a TV pilot. It just has to be your original idea. Hell, make something up right now!
4.) You can enter as many pitches as you want!
The Twitch Competition starts NOW and closes at 11:59PM PST next Wednesday, May 11!
