So the Texas Book Festival has competition this weekend! The Austin Film Festival (AFF) will also be happening. This is the festival’s 20th anniversary, and it looks like it’s shaping up to be a great year. Vince Gilligan of Breaking Bad fame will be participating in several panels, including a stage reading of his new script, 2 Face. And who will feature in this reading? Will Ferrell. That’s right. Will. Effing. Ferrell. That $700 producer’s badge just got more tempting.

But beyond those two flashiest of names, there are many speakers—from Eli Attie to Stephen Falk to Leslie Dixon (She wrote Overboard, you guys!)—who will be imparting screenwriting–film-making–industry-knowing tricks of the trade.
