Austin Film Festival
The eight-day film festival focuses on industry creatives more than celebrity red carpet fodder. Austin Film Festival passes range from $50 to $650 for the all-powerful Producers Badge, and are available online or at the venues (get $10 off with promo code CHRONFP). Highlights include Boy Erased, written and directed by Joel Edgerton; Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favorite; and closing night film The Front Runner with writer/director Jason Reitman in attendance.
