Hey Austinites: Kevin Reynolds Brings ‘Fandango’ Back Home on Wednesday


I’ve got two questions for our readers that live in Austin. First, what are you wearing? And secondly, what are you doing Wednesday night around, say, 6ish? Wandering around aimlessly near the AT&T Conference Center, asking for loose change and doing your one-man version of “Who’s On First?” for whoever will listen?

Bad idea, friend.

Instead, you should bring yourself inside to listen to veteran filmmaker Kevin Reynolds discuss film, give some advice to budding filmmakers and hopefully explain his eerie attachment to using Kevin Costner in his films. As part of the Austin Film Festival’s Conversations in Film Series, Reynolds will be opening himself up to questions about craft and creativity, followed up by a screening of his debut feature film Fandango – a movie that made me desperately want to go on a college road trip and avoid Vietnam.

It’s all going down on Wednesday, May 13th, at 6:00pm at the AT&T Conference Center down on 1900 University Ave. (the conversation) and 7:30 at the Bob Bullock State History Museum on 1800 Congress (Fandango screening).

How much would you pay for such an event? Exactly $20? Excellent, because that’s the price. If you want to purchase tickets (and I suggest you do so ahead of time to avoid them selling out), you can go to This Website or you can call 1.800.310.3378.

If you just want to go to the screening, it’s $5. Also, there will be sign language interpretation provided for the Conversation with Kevin Reynolds.

So stop drooling all over yourself or foolishly trying to have a nice family dinner – come on down and have a few questions ready for the man who directed Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Waterworld, Tristan + Isolde and wrote the screenplay for Red Dawn.
