As part of its Orbiter Year-Round Series, Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival is proud to present the Texas premiere of the alternative timeline thriller, DIVERGE, on Wednesday, August 16 (7:30pm) at Flix Brewhouse. Writer/Director James Morrison will be in attendance and will do a Q&A after the screening.
Writer/director Claire Carré deservedly took home the inaugural Mary Shelley Award this weekend at the second Other Worlds Austin fest. With nothing more than performances and ruins, she creates a convincing and enthralling world.
When he started writing his debut feature, director Carleton Ranney wanted to tackle weightier issues than the standard freshman indie relationship drama.
Under its original title of The Well, this was one of the highlight screenings of last year's inaugural Other Worlds Austin science fiction festival (See Water Wars, Dec.5, 2014). It was also a homecoming of sorts, since writer Jacob Forman and director Tom Hammock came up with the premise in 2006 while driving cross-country to work on Texas-shot All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
