Yes, I went to that this year and it was outstanding.
Another great workshop that I went to just before Michael's, was Terry Rossio: Description, Dialogue and Rewriting - it was something new they added this year and it was amazing. Both of those were worth the entire cost of the trip, let alone everything else gained.
Terry was great, talking about the syllable to value ratio - that how a longer description can read shorter by what it offers the reader, that being economical is not less words but by a higher syllable value ratio.
AFF was so much more than I anticipated. The writer is king at this festival and I will be attending next year. Every aspiring screenwriter should attend just once.
