Starting this Friday, the film, music, and technology geeks of the world will descend upon Austin, Texas, for the week long party that is South By Southwest (SXSW). I was fortunate enough to attend last years film events, where I was able to meet all kinds of incredible folks from the movie blogs, and even a few Criterion related folks. This year however, I am unable to attend due to the imminent arrival of my daughter (she’s actually due in April). There is a pretty incredible line-up of films again this year, and some really special film related panels that I would love to see.
Luckily, our own Joshua Brunsting will be attending the festival for CriterionCast.com. This will be his first trip to SXSW, so if you’ll be in town be sure to look him up while you’re there. Be sure to follow him on Twitter, or follow CriterionCast, and I’ll likely be retweeting most of his thoughts on the films as he races from theater to theater.
Will you be in Austin for SXSW this year? Are there any films that will be premiering, that you’d like to read about here on the site? Let us know in the comments below.
