Today marked the first day for our newest member of the SXSW Film Festival staff. Her name is Lya Guerra. Lya is joining us as the new Film Festival Coordinator, which means she will work primarily with receiving subimissions, coordinating with our selection committee, and communicating with filmmakers. Lya comes to us after a gig working for Detour Filmproduction in Austin as well as various film festival duties back home in Arizona. Plus, she was our Film Festival Intern for the 2005 event.
So, anyway, if you come across her while working with us this year, now you know a little bit about her. Welcome to the family, Lya.
