Austin Film Festival 2013

Inside Llewyn Davis' Oscar Isaac


It’s been 20 years already? The Austin Film Festival, which pays special attention to the art of screenwriting, is celebrating its first two decades with the usual selection of must-see films and must-attend events. The festival starts this Thursday and continues until October 31; there’s plenty to choose from no matter your tastes. The following are the movies (or movie/TV-related events) that I don’t want to miss.

Keep in mind: Even if you don’t have a festival badge, individual tickets are sold 20 minutes prior to a film’s screening if space permits and once all badge-holders are seated. The $65 pass gets you into the Opening Night, Centerpiece, and the Film Pass Party on October 29. You can get the pass and complete information at austinfilmfestival.com.

Documentary / Political Bodies from Allied House on Vimeo.

‘Political Bodies’
Christopher Englese’s Political Bodies couldn’t be timelier. The documentary chronicles the Virginia controversy over vaginal probes (and other mandates against women) and how both women and men stood up for women’s rights in that state, but it obviously transcends the regional and makes a strong case that what happens in Virginia could happen anywhere. Englese will be present for a discussion after the screening. 4pm Wed, Oct 30 (World Premiere), Alamo Drafthouse Village, 2700 W Anderson Lane; 9:45pm Thu, Oct 24, Texas Spirit Theater, 1800 Congress.

FINDING NEIGHBORS TRAILER from Ron Judkins on Vimeo.

‘Finding Neighbors’
Directed by two-time Oscar winner Ron Judkins (Best Sound for Saving Private Ryan and Jurassic Park), who will be present for this world premiere, the movie centers around a formerly acclaimed graphic novelist whose midlife crisis leads to bizarre neighborhood drama. No surprise about Judkins choosing this fest to debut this film: his previous one, The Hi-Line (1991) won the AFF’s People’s Choice Award. 5pm Fri, Oct 25, State Theatre, 713 Congress; 7:45pm Sun, Oct 27, Galaxy Highland 10, 6700 Middle Fiskville.
