“We’re thrilled to have EW present Gilmore Girls as Closing Night, as it will allow us to host it in a larger venue for more fans to enjoy, and those who can’t attend will still have the chance to watch it on EW.com,” Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson, the executive directors of ATX, said in a joint statement.

For those of you who do not know what the ATX Television Festival is, it is a “celebration of the medium: looking back at its history, where it is now, and where it is headed,” according to their official website.
“We have the functionality of a traditional film festival with screenings followed by Q&A’s from cast and creators; panels focused on industry related topics, and an array of events that includes parties, live music, meet-ups, social media events, and ‘super secret happy hours.'”
This year’s festival will be held from June 4-7 in Austin, Texas. The ATX website explains why they chose Austin to be the location of one of the biggest television events of the year.
“Austin is approximately in the middle of the United States, making travel from East or West coast more convenient. Texas TV production has a long history, not the least of which is strong current productions in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. We love our city and strive to be part of our community by showcasing small businesses, local food, and working with arts organizations.”
