Happy Birthday, SLACKER! Read the 10th Anniversary Program from July 2001
Richard Linklater’s SLACKER, released nationally on July 5, 1991, has left a lasting impression on the independent filmmaking world and Austin’s own film scene. Back in July 2001, AFS celebrated our Founder and Artistic Director’s groundbreaking film with a ten year reunion at the Paramount Theatre. Cast, crew, and just about everyone who lived in Austin in the early 90s were brought together to remember the making-of the film.
Limited edition programs were made for the occasion, featuring notes from Linklater, producer John Sloss, film rep John Pierson, Austin Chronicle editor Louis Black, and more. Take a few minutes to flip through this unarchived treasure.
