After a year of waiting, the Austin Film Festival is finally here! Considered by the festival community as a hands-down premiere film festival, Austin enjoys both a great location and a host of fantastic films from all over the world to choose from.
This year’s AFF opens with Not Fade Away!
It’s 1964, the Rolling Stones appear on television and three best friends from the suburbs of New Jersey decide to form a rock band. This is the premise upon which David Chase builds his feature film directorial debut, carrying over his trademark mastery of narrative and dialogue from The Sopranos to the silver screen.
For those of us who have deeply missed his contributions to our film/television landscape, this is a welcome return, with exciting young actors Magaro, Huston, Brill, and Heathcote joining veterans Gandolfini, Garrett, and McDonald in a spectacular ensemble. In Attendance: David Chase, (Director/Screenwriter). For more information on this and other films check out the AFF Festival Genius schedule.
