Austin Film Festival Panelists Announced! Print E-mail

Known for being the only film festival focusing on screenwriting with prestigious screenplay competitions, the 19th Annual Austin Film Festival & Conference has famously pioneered a week of idea exchange between industry icons and rising artists that is unmatched by any conference. Due to the Festival’s devotion to writers and story, the interactive panels, roundtable discussions, and programming make a call to creativity that affects and reaches both seasoned panelists and newcomer registrants. These panels are so raw and straightforward and often uproariously fun, you’ll leave with creative morale sky-high, and your pockets full of strategies, concepts and tricks that can make or break projects and careers.
