Satellite Beach
USA, 27 min

Writer: Luke Wilson (in attendance)

Directors: Luke Wilson and Andrew Wilson

Also in attendance: Steve Eckelman (producer)

Satellite Beach follows the unique journey of the Endeavour space shuttle as it travels through the streets of Los Angeles to the California Science Center and the final move of the Atlantis space shuttle to the Kennedy Space Center.  Watch as Warren Flowers, a devoted and unlikely shuttle manager navigates the missions on his own accord while the citizens, reporters, and officials are perplexed by his involvement.


The Pope of Greenwich Village

Austin Film Festival’s Retrospective Screenings allow veteran screenwriters and filmmakers to present their own films or works that have inspired their careers.  The main function of the program is to connect the public and the filmmaker, open the dialogue between artist and audience, and provide a platform for film-lovers and makers to learn about classic films.

Guest programmers will present retrospective films followed by extended post-screening discussions on why these pieces were influential not only to their own work, but the landscape of cinema as a whole.

The aim is to introduce new audiences to great films by inviting contemporary filmmakers and screenwriters to present a film of their choice.
