My Journey To The Austin Film Festival!

10122016_affbadge

Ten years ago, I was a Reader for the 2006 Austin Film Festival’s screenplay competition.

This time around, I’m on the other side of the judging, & attending the event as a 2nd Rounder in the Comedy category for my feature-length screenplay, ParentsMatchU.com.

PS – Hey Mom,
Thanks for driving me up to Austin today to pick up my Conference Badge for the 2016 Austin Film Festival. You maneuvered downtown traffic like a champ!

2nd Rounder in Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition!

 

It’s Official! This is the good news I’ve been dying to share with you…

It’s an honor to announce that my Romantic/Comedy screenplay “ParentsMatchU.com” made it to the 2nd Round (Top 15%) of the prestigious Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition!

So, what does this mean?

#1) To *me*: It’s validation for hundreds of hours of work on this script – writing the original draft, the revisions, editing, scene arrangement, dialogue, character-development, etc.

#2) Festival Bonus: Admittance to private events and Round Table discussions that are only open to “2nd Rounders or Higher” during the 23rd annual Austin Film Festival.

#3) The Script: After some additional revisions, I’ll send it off to my industry contacts and other screenwriting contests, which will hopefully increase the opportunity for “ParentsMatchU.com” to be optioned by a studio or director, and eventually produced!

A huge *thank you* to my eagle-eye proofreaders Lorelei, Suzan & Patsy who gave so generously of their time to read the script and provide feedback/corrections prior to submission.

The complete list of 2nd Rounders and Semifinalists is available at this link:https://austinfilmfestival.com/…/screenp…/2016-sf-2rounders/

Write on!
