AFS Hosting Spirits Viewing Party

AFS Hosting Spirits Viewing Party

The Austin Film Society has announced details for its annual Independent Spirit Awards viewing party. Why annual? Because it never fails that each year, an AFS-related project gets a nod. This year, it’s three projects: Chris Eska’s August Evening (nominated for the John Cassavetes Award and Best Actor for Pedro Castaneda), Laura Dunn’s The Unforeseen (nominated for the IFC Truer Than Fiction Award), and Jeff Nichols’ Shotgun Stories (also nominated for the John Cassavete Award). On Saturday, AFS members are invited to celebrate and cheer these folks on. AFS staffer Bryan Poyser will not be at the viewing party, because he was on a nominating committee and will be at the awards. As I blogged recently, I’ll be sorta kinda on the red carpet. RSVPs for the sure-to-be-popular red carpet online viewing party should be kept to yourself.
