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.
