AFF competition deadline and partnership with AMC

Matthew Odam

The Austin Film Festival has announced that AMC will determine the semifinalists, finalists and winners of its teleplay competition. Finalists in the top three competition categories (sit-com spec, one-hour spec and sit-com pilot) will be given the opportunity to meet with a representative from the network that airs “Mad Men” and “TheWalking Dead” during this year’s conference and at a later date over the phone. The deadline for AFF’s screenplay and teleplay competition is Saturday night. For more information, visit .
