AFF 2015 Day 1 – October 29th, 2015
Welcome to the first official day of the 2015 Austin Film Festival Writers Conference.
Technically, things kicked off last night at the Film & Food Fundraiser/Party (where I stuffed my face with Shake Shack).
Of course once I wandered down to the Driskill Hotel Bar, I kept meeting old friends and making new ones.
Enough about last night. Here’s what I’m attending today…
12p, Opening Remarks – Shane Black (Lethal Weapon) and Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean) would like to welcome you to Fantasy Island… I mean AFF.
1p, Anatomy of the Writers Room – Writers from Justified and The Americans lay down the law of the writers room.
1p, The Life of a Screenwriter: Structure On and Off the Page – Practical tips from Justin Marks and Terry Rossio.
2:45p, The Hart Chart – I’m told there will be graphs.
5p, Austin Film Commission Opening Reception – A good excuse to meet, mingle and drink.
11p, WGA West Late Night Welcome Party – Hey, I love your library!
See ya at the fest.
