Wow! What a weekend! We at Twitchy Dolphin Flix are just blown away by all of the love and support from the filmmakers and the fans. Putting on a fest isn’t easy. Putting on a fest for true indies is harder, but so rewarding.
It started Thursday morning when Ryan Andrews, Sarah England, Thomas Phillips, Grace Hathaway, Mike Donis and Nathan Bybee visited the St. Austin Film Class. The ability to encourage young filmmakers to follow their dreams is always a wonderful experience. We followed it up with a dream trip to the Salt Lick. MEAT!
Thursday night was a great first for the AIFS. A night at the drive in to see Sick, Werebitches 3, Pete Winning and BFF. We had a great turnout. The films looked gorgeous on a beautiful night against a perfect Austin sky. The Blue Starlite is soon to be an iconic part of the Austin Film Landscape! We just know it!
Saturday’s screenings went great! The level of competition took a giant leap forward. Audiences were greeted with some great comedy, sweet romance, moving drama and some scary horror and a little dose of weird. Special thanks goes to Marc Wasserman and Dave Cohen for throwing a great after part.
We just want to thank everyone again for a great time. Our fest is not about egos or star spotting. it’s about real indie filmmakers showing their hard work. We’re tired, but ready for next year. Submissions start in early 2014! For a full list of winners.
