|Austin Film Festival main venue|
As I stand outside the venue where my short film is playing for the Austin Film Festival, I look to my left:
Stylishly dressed people and a bunch of nerds standing in line for the screenings.
I then look to my right and see giant crowds of drunk people watching the University of Texas football game:
A girl near me with a burnt-orange shirt, cowboy hat, and glazed eyes shouts, “Wooooooooooo!!!"
And yes, in that very moment, I am literally standing at the crossroads of the two sides of Austin.
Art versus Football...
I smile to myself, and say, “Yup, that about sums it up.”
