SXSW Recap

Author: elvis

South by Southwest, the Film, Music and Interactive festival of Austin, Texas, has grown every year since its inception in 1987. True to tradition this year’s festival, which took place March 7-16, was a huge success, featuring exceptional keynote speakers, films, performances, apps, games, and so much more. This year was also unfortunately host to more drama and destruction than in years past. Below you’ll find an overview of the festival’s most compelling moments.

The SXSW film festival spanned the course of nine days and premiered everything from the anticipated feature Veronica Mars, to world premiere and winner of the Documentary Feature Competition The Great Invisible. Below is a short list of some of the films that made a big splash in Austin this year.

  • Creating quite the buzz is narrative feature Grandy Jury Winner Fort Tilden two young Brooklyn women and their humorously endless journey to the beach.
  • Vessel, a film about a captain who provides abortions at sea, was the winner of both the Documentary Feature Competition Audience Award, as well as the Jury Award for Special Recognition for Political Courage.
  • This year SXSW introduced a new category of film: Episodic. The winner for this new category focused on the television screen was Silicon Valley. The anticipated new series will premiere on HBO April 6th.

  • Six full days of musical performances showcased over 2,200 “regional, national and international acts.” For a comprehensive list of performers click here. Here are some picks of the many notable artists featured at this year’s SXSW Music festival.
