Austin Film Festival's On Story

Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa are the screenwriting duo responsible for rebooting the Planet of the Apes franchise.  This conversation reveals their inspiration and travails in the creation two iconic films in the "Apes" cannon.  Adding to their credits is this summer's release, Jurassic World which recently had the highest grossing opening weekend in box office history.

The second half of our program features Danny Boyle. The Academy Award® winning director needs little introduction with a filmography including Trainspotting28 Days Later  and Slumdog Millionaire . His next film is slated to be the Steve Jobs biopic starring Michael Fassbender. This conversation was recorded in 2008 at the 15 th  Austin Film Festival and was moderated by film critic Christopher Kelly.
