The Austin Film Festival kicks into high gear Thursday.

Nearly 100 new films hit the screen including an early look at some potential awards contenders. Wednesday night's Food and Film Gala was the appetizer for a week-long event.

The festival is a destination for movie premieres and special panels where the emphasis is on the art of screenwriting.

"Probably the most important thing is a great script and then great elements, but it does start with that blueprint," Actress Alexis Bledel said.

Johnny Depp and James Franco are the biggest celebrities set to hit town this weekend.
