Gary Hart Biopic The Front Runner to Close Austin Film Festival
New films by Yorgos Lanthimos, Asghar Farhadi added to fest
DAILY Screens  September 12, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...After a first wave that included new films starring Melissa McCarthy, Tessa Thompson, and Fankie Muniz, the big news today is that Reitman's latest, political biopic The Front Runner, will be the closing night film for the festival's 25th anniversary season. Based on Matt Bai's 2014 book All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid, it stars Hugh Jackman as Gary Hart, the seemingly inevitable Democratic nominee for the 1988 presidential ticket whose career flamed out after a sex scandal...."

Austin Film Festival Review: Shorts Program 10 – Everything’s Shorter in Texas
Series highlights strong range of local filmmakers
DAILY Screens  October 16, 2016, by Sean L. Malin
"...Stories of similar complexity came – not coincidentally – from a series of UT-based filmmakers: Rachel Bardin, who shot her ambitious biographical doc “Lavoyger” in gorgeous black-and-white; Joel Fendelman, whose character study “Game Night” observes a ruminant night in the life of a failed athlete; and Lizette Barrera, who with writer Renier Murrillo portrays a near-incestuous family’s confrontation in “Mosca.” These Texas-set projects challenged the pejorative use of the term “student film” with their undeniable visual accomplishments and their unifying sense of profound social concerns. Between “Lavoyger” and “Game Night,” we received the two most excoriating commentaries on social stratification to screen in Austin since Juan Pablo Gonzalez’s brilliant 2014 short “The Solitude of Memory.”..."
