Podcast #15: AFF 2009 Preview with Kelly Williams


AFF Tote Bags by stomptokyo on TwitterIn podcast #15, Jette giggles helplessly from the sidelines while Chris Holland -- in his triumphant return to Slackerwood podcasts -- and AFF Film Program Director Kelly Williams go crazy discussing/debating their picks for can't-miss movies and events during Austin Film Festival 2009. There may also be some heckling. I do manage to sneak a couple of questions in there.

Kelly gives us the inside scoop on big-name stars at marquee screenings, as well as interesting details about some lesser-known films playing AFF. He also shares a few tips for anyone who just wants to buy tickets to a movie or two during AFF.

If you're planning to attend Austin Film Festival this year, if you're on the fence about buying a film pass, or if you just need a good laugh, you won't want to miss this podcast. Disclaimer: Despite what we may have said in the podcast, Oprah Winfrey is not scheduled to attend the AFF screening of Precious: Based on the Novel Push By Sapphire. However, those double-features at Alamo Lake Creek really are on the schedule.

Oh, yeah, and I suppose you'll find out quickly that we're back to using the seven words you can't say on television.

Listen to podcast #15 now.
