Something to Purr About: Special Cat! Discount for the Austin Film Festival & Conference
Thanks to a collaboration between Melody Lopez of the Austin Cats! and the kind organizers of the Austin Film Festival and Conference, all Save the Cat! subscribers can enjoy a special discount on tickets to this year’s gala event.
We owe this incredible opportunity to an offer by the Austin Cats! to sponsor the attendance of author/screenwriter Will Akers at the conference. Will penned the bestselling Your Screenplay Sucks!, 100 Ways to Make It Great – a title that Blake frequently and happily recommended to his pupils (Melody included).
The inside of Will’s book bears Blake’s words of praise: “William M. Akers is a renaissance man of film who is at once a big studio screenwriter, independent writer/director, and caring, insightful teacher.'”
Read the full interview between Melody Lopez and Will Akers on the Austin Film Festival blog, or see below for full details on the discount being offered to Cats! everywhere. And if you’re attending the Festival, be sure to see the screenwriters panel with Cat! Alvaro Rodriguez!
To receive the discount, the order will need to be made by phone (800.310.3378 or 512.478.4795); registrants should ask to speak with either Matt Dy (pronounced ‘Dee’), our Screenplay Competition Director, or Maya Perez. You can also contact the organizers for more information at [email protected] or [email protected].
