Lights, Camera, ACTION… SXSW Film Festival 2014 is about to open!
More and more people are thinking of Austin when they think of the movie business, and SXSW Film has been providing a forum for filmmakers and performers at all levels of the industry since 1994. As part of the greater SXSW Festival, SXSW Film has become an annual destination for anyone who wants to be involved in professional filmmaking in the U.S.
Featuring days of sessions and keynotes, a full schedule of screenings, trade show, workshops and parties SXSW Film Festival 2014 will be non-stop action. This year’s keynotes include Lena Dunham who writes, directs, produces and performs in the popular HBO series Girls; Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum; and the online filmmaking guru Casey Neistat. Emmy-winning director and producer Jon Favreau is also premiering his new film, Chef, and this is the first year for the SXSW Sports track, which is sure to be a highlight.
One of the most highly anticipated events of the SXSW Film Festival 2014 are the SXSW Film Awards, taking place on Tuesday, March 11 at 8pm at the Paramount Theater. SXSW is an official qualifying festival for the Academy Awards Short Film competition, and a BAFTA-recognized festival for the purposes of eligibility for the Short Film category at the Orange British Academy Film Awards. Winners at SXSW Film go on to do great things!
