SXSW Film Festival

I'm at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas! The capital city is a hub of film and media development and befitting Texas, a rich and wild town, proud of it's history and even more intent on its future. I'll be examining and reviewing the three legs of the Fest - film, interactive media, and music, posting reviews and encounters, the scenes of Austin. As thousands of cinephiles, musicians, and the uber-geekdom of interactive media (gaming, etc.) coalesce, the emerging cultural stew is set to create a "state of the art" as only "South By..." does.
Along with attempting to absorb nine days of film, one can't swing a guitar around without hitting a musician as over 1800 bands are performing in the myriad venues all over town, for a five day blast of sound and fury. Stay tuned.....
