About Sarah Pitre & Brandy Fons

Forever Fest is the creation of Brandy Fons and Sarah Pitre.

She is also the founder of, a website devoted to "YA fans who are a little less Y and a bit more A." Brandy Fons is the co-owner of Fons PR- a film and entertainment company based in Austin that oversees multiple films festivals and studio clients in addition to the legendary Alamo Drafthouse and their family of companies.
