Film Festival Updates From The Inside-Out…

Being the summer months, the atmosphere at SXSW HQ is one of constant shuffle, an ebb and a flow. There are several things on our plate at the moment. The first of which is our first-ever SXSWeb Media Festival, which has taken off with a nice start. The submissions are now beginning to roll in, with our deadline (June 7) still a few weeks away. We now begin the process of watching and judging the shorts we’ve received, planning to announce our selections by late June…
Meanwhile, Festival Coordinator Cathy Ross is working to secure our customized awards trophies for this year’s winners. Those have just return from printing and she’ll now get those sent off. When I ran into the SXSW award-winning filmmakers behind A League of Ordinary Gentlemen at Tribeca, their first question was, “Where’s our award??” We know, we know. These things take time, and all you SXSW 2004 winners will have a nice prize in the mail sooner than you think…
In addition to this, SXSW Film Sales rep Wendy Cummings and I are plotting our trip to Dallas in early June for the annual SWAFT Convention. SXSW will have a presence at this year’s event, which is basically just a big tradeshow and convention for film and TV companies in this part of the country…
Meanwhile, there’s stuff this week worth catching. Thursday night, both John Waters and the Broken Lizard guys are hosting separate film events. I hope to have recaps and reports on both.
