A Conversation in Film with Elizabeth Avellán: Producing Your Independent Feature Film on July 22nd

Austin Film Festival and Women In Cinema are presenting the next installment of AFF’s Conversations in Film Series. On July 22nd, join producer Elizabeth Avellán for an in-depth and informative discussion on producing an independent feature film. Using When Angels Sing and Blacktino as case studies, she’ll talk about all aspects of producing your feature film: from selecting your script and director, financing, putting your crew together, production – specifically in Austin – through post- and marketing.
Elizabeth Avellán is the Co-Owner and Vice President of Troublemaker Studios and President of EYA Productions. Avellán’s producing career began with Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi – made for just $7,000, El Mariachi was the winner of the 1993 Audience Awards at the Sundance and Deauville Film Festivals – and her credits have since grown to include  Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Faculty, Spy Kids, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, Sin City, Grindhouse, and many more.
In addition to producing family and genre films that have collectively grossed over a billion dollars, she has played a primary role in developing Austin, Texas as a thriving film community.
