Austin film lovers are recuperating this morning from the big Austin Film Society (AFS) 20th anniversary party last night. The party was held in the studio where the Rollergirls TV series was shot, and people kept wondering where in the world the tracks had gone. The place was packed ... no one expected such a large crowd, even though free barbecue was involved.
The Austin American-Statesman has been publishing some nice articles this week about Austin Film Society's 20 successful years. Chris Garcia interviews notable people involved with AFS over the years about the way the group has affected Austin. Also, AFS director Rebecca Campbell lists the group's top contributions in the past 20 years.
The film society is certainly busy this week, co-sponsoring or sponsoring films all week long around Austin, as you can see from the list of upcoming screenings and events.
