Austin Film Festival's On Story
Breaking Into Film


Screenplay competitions are a fantastic way to get started in the business, and AFF is surely no exception. Troy Anthony Miller recently signed an option with Frank Darabont's production company, Darkwoods Productions, for his winning AFF script The Hitch. Earlier this summer, AFF’s screenplay alum Oren Uziel found success in theatres nationwide after penning 22 Jump Street. And during the Festival this year, Rachel Long and Brian Pittman will present the world premiere of Dawn Patrol, a screenplay that originated out of AFF's screenplay competition and was produced by Dan Petrie, Jr, and Rick Dugdale's production company, Enderby Entertainment. These alum will provide insight into how the competition has launched their film careers, and how it can do the same for you.
