Austin Film Fest Rolling Updates!


Hey there! The Austin Creative Alliance, Nowplayingaustin.com, and the A-Team will be at the Austin Film Festival this weekend/week, and we’ll be providing you with rolling updates about the Festival!

First up, intrepid A-Team member Laura Cannon:

I attended the viewing of The Butterfly Circus, The
Man Who Knew How to Fly, Sad Bear, Make Up and
Spanola Pepper Sauce Company. They were all
outstanding! Make Up was by far my favorite but it
was a close race. It is a story of a lady selling
cosmetics door to door. It has a major twist at the
end that I suspected early on but they threw me off
track with another twist. Spanola Pepper Sauce
Company was a very simple film. It had only one
actor and was set in an empty field. The man tells
about the pepper sauce, what he does with his
family on a typical Sunday, how he kills Vampires
when he happens to come across them and how his
wife was turned into one. It is an intriguing and
thought provoking film that I loved. Sad Bear was
my least favorite but it was still a great film. It was
touching and little sad but the bear did not look like
any bear I have ever seen. Three of the filmmakers
stayed after the viewing to do a talk back. It was
wonderful to hear about their inspiration.
