Austin Music Meets Film

The Austin Film Festival has taken over the Austin movie scene for the past week and a half.  Back in 1994, the event dubbed itself the first festival of its kind –specifically dedicated to writing for film.  17 years later, the festival attracts screenwriters, directors, editors, producers and actors from across the globe to participate in panels, premiers and script readings.  But in the ‘Live Music Capital of the World,’ where does music assert its place among filmmakers? 

KUT’s Andy Uhler caught up with the Kelly Williams, the Film Program Director for the Festival, and he asked Williams whether the festival is conscious to cater its film selection to a music-loving audience.
