Gin & Dry at Austin Film Festival

Gin & Dry was officially selected for the Austin Film Festival, so we headed over to the States to get in on the action!

Gin & Dry screened twice on the 21st and again on the 24th to packed audiences (sitting in the aisles packed!), after which the film's writer/director Oscar Plewes gave a Q&A, after the screenings we headed to Austin's infamous Sixth St to celebrate the film's brilliant reception.  Not only was our short in the festival, but our friends over at LA based 28 Entertainment were in town too with their film Deep in the Heart - and a London / LA link up means another reason to celebrate.

Over our ten days we experienced all Austin had to offer, and it didn't disappoint.  From the cities nightlife, it's pretty awesome street food a good dose of Southern hospitality and an impromptu bar consisting of a pick up, a cooler and a hay bale, we'll definitely be heading back.  The festival itself was a great event, an excellent selection of films from around the world, inspiring talks by the likes of writer Michael Arndt, drawing in audiences who just love film.  Gin & Dry received an amazing response and we met some wonderful people...we couldn't be happier!
