MODERATION a Semi-Finalist at the Austin Film Festival

The Austin Film Festival (AFF) is the leading festival with a focus on screenwriting. They have a category for stage plays, and MODERATION was named a semi-finalist or one of the top 2% of scripts submitted. Check it out.

I attended this festival back when I was a Michener Fellow and had a great time. It’s virtual this year and I’m jazzed to be there in that capacity.
