Slackerwood Podcast #3: Fantastic Fest Preview with Zack Carlson
In Slackerwood podcast #3, Chris Holland and Jette Kernion hang out with Fantastic Fest/Alamo Drafthouse programmer Zack Carlson (shown above during last year's fest). We start with Austin film news and updates, including the Surfer, Dude green-carpet premiere, and additions to Austin Film Festival's panelists. The Fantastic Fest segment covers changes to the festival this year -- like the opening-night film, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, at the Paramount with Kevin Smith attending -- and recommendations from Zack about the weird, the gory, and for wusses like Jette, the kid-friendly films. You'll have to listen to find out if he drops any hints about Fantastic Fest's notorious secret screenings. Finally, we share our picks for upcoming Austin screenings and movie events, such as the Harry Ransom Center's fall film schedule.
