Indie Meme Mixer & Short Film Screening with filmmaker Sopan Muller

The 30 min documentary, MY CHILD IS GAY AND I AM HAPPY, is a series of interviews with some remarkable parents, whose children represent the LGBTQ community. It shows their journey, from being unsuspecting and often accepting, to being the caring, supportive parents they are today. In each case, the parent and the child are a source of great inspiration to the community.

WE WILL HAVE A MIXER FOLLOWED BY THE SHORT FILM & A DISCUSSION WITH THE FILMMAKER.

FILM TALKS: DEATH VIRGINS

DEATH VIRGINS is a film about a bloodthirsty feminist cult, hellbent on destroying the patriarchy. Created by two horror fans who were bored of seeing the same archaic subtext repackaged again and again, deciding to create a film that subverts and heightens sexist, racist, homophobic horror tropes.

We are transforming our 8,000 square foot warehouse into a dark mysterious viewing room with 20 ft pro-res screen and some other experiences for your senses. One of our goals with our expanded space is to transform the way we create AND consume art — making viable options for unique experiences for both the viewer and the creator. Welcome to our dungeon, drinks will be provided. #deathvirgins

"Where we're going, we don't need eyes to see..."

Can the familiar still frighten you? How do movies marvel us with visions of a future inspired more often than not, by other movies we’ve seen? Join acclaimed screenwriter Philip Eisner (EVENT HORIZON) as he breaks down some well-travelled cinematic set pieces (haunted houses, mystical swords, blood-thirsty monsters) across the genres to show how writers build off memory to construct their own mythology. Featuring clips from a variety of films, this workshop is perfect for genre filmmakers and fans alike.

Eisner will be joining Other Worlds Austin Film Festival in partnership with the Austin School of Film for this free, open to the public event.  A must for writers in our community to have a chance to share and learn how a great screenwriter works and gathers inspiration!
