SXSW Film Festival: The World Comes to Austin
USA- Austin, TX | Feb 28 2012 | (01:09:16 - EDT)
“The great thing about the massive program at the SXSW Film Festival is that it runs so deep and it takes so many chances, whether on up-and-coming directors, megastars in need of PR miracles, or random collaborations between artists so awesome, the mere idea of them working together blows your mind.”

The SXSW Film Conference and Festival features a dynamic convergence of talent, smart audiences and industry leaders in a uniquely creative environment. A hotbed of discovery and interactivity, the event offers invaluable networking opportunities and immersion into the art and business of independent film.
The Film Conference buzzes with world-class speakers, creatives and innovators in a productive social atmosphere. Simultaneously the internationally acclaimed Film Festival program celebrates raw innovation and emerging talent, featuring provocative documentaries, comedies, genre standouts and more.
The 26th edition of SXSW will arrive with a lot of momentum carried over from our Silver Anniversary in 2011.
Expect to see expansion of last year's new initiatives, such as the combined SXSW Trade Show for the Creative Industries, which draws from all the events - Interactive, Film and Music.
SXSW.COM is the most powerful tool available for keeping up with the countless new developments for the 2012 event, with fresh daily content, new mobile apps, and more rich media to help visitors make the best choices on what to see and hear while in Austin.
The value of meeting people face to face in order to share ideas and do business is what makes SXSW invaluable. SXSW 2012 will once again be a vital launching pad for creative endeavors, drawing attention and participation from around the globe.
This year's film festival and conference takes place on March 18, 2012 in Austin, TX.
