Austin Film Festival 2018

Oct. 25-Nov. 1, 2018

Founded in 1993, the trailblazing Austin Film Festival and Conference was the first event of its kind to celebrate and elevate the role of the screenwriter. There’s plenty to learn in the conference’s many panel sessions, while the Driskill Bar is famously a good place for screenwriter hopefuls to rub elbows with industry vets. And if you’re just a fan of good movies, then the eight-day film festival provides ample opportunity for that.
