25th Anniversary Classics: Rudy & Philadelphia

This week, in honor of Austin Film Festival’s 25th Anniversary we’re going back into our archives to bring you conversations with writers that created two of 1993’s most remembered films. First we’ll hear from screenwriter Angelo Pizzo who wrote the inspirational football drama Rudy. And later, we’ll hear from Ron Nyswaner who wrote the Jonathan Demme directed drama Philadelphia, which starred Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks.

TEASER! Script to Screen: Pete's Dragon

In this episode, Pete's Dragon director and co-writer David Lowery and co-writer Toby Halbrooks take us behind the scenes of their reinvention of the classic story and discuss writing fairy tales, balancing tragedy with wonder, and the difference between making indie films, like Ain't Them Bodies Saints, and a big budget Disney movie.
