More than just a showcase of great films and writers, Austin Film Festival is committed to working within the community and bringing out the best writer in all of us. Well, there’s no better way to improve your writing than to–**shudder**–read your work out loud. To people! Sounds scary, doesn’t it? Luckily we’re partnering with ColdTowne Theater to provide a supportive, fun environment to share your baby with the world (baby being a new script, sketch, short story, you name it! Though I guess you can also Lion King your newborn to the audience if you’d like). Have a screenplay you’re working on? A play? A podcast? A web series? A sketch? Give it a test run with your peers!
Get a sneak peek of Austin’s works in progress as selected storytellers share the first three pages of their projects with the help of ColdTowne’s company of talented performers. Share your own work or just show up to admire and applaud the creativity of others. Submit your projects online prior to the event for the chance to be selected. Free alcohol will be served to calm all those nerves.
