Celebrating its 20th year, the Austin Film Festival began screening noteworthy films Thursday at various locations around the state capital.
The festival, also known as AFF, brought people from different parts of the film industry together. Conference panels and Q-and-A sessions aimed to complement the screenings and please moviegoers and film buffs citywide. In addition to showing dozens of films spanning a variety of genres, the star-studded festival featured sponsored parties and opportunities to speak with cinema heavyweights.
Filmmaker Ron Judkins premiered his latest movie “Finding Neighbors,” marking a return to the craft for the first time in more than 10 years since his 1999 AFF Audience Award Winner “The Hi-Line.”
