SXSW revealed today that daily Keynote sessions, offered for
the first time, will feature filmmakers Lena Dunham (HBO’s “Girls”), Jason Blum
(producer of “Insidious,” “Purge and “Paranormal Activity” franchises) and
Casey Neistat (HBO’s “The Neistat Brothers”).

Also announced were the first batch of confirmed panels,
workshops and Digital Domain sessions for 2014, and the all-new Future 15
track. Included among these activities are a Sound and Story panel with Skywalker
Sound, a How to Book Your Next Audition workshop with SAG, and an After Wrap
panel with Kino Lorber on distribution. All the announced panels can be checked out here.

These sessions join the previously announced content for the
new SXsports
, including ESPN’s Bill Simmons and Nate Silver in conversation.

The SXSW Film Conference and Festival will take place March
7–15, 2014 in Austin, Texas. The final Film Keynote speaker and complete Conference lineup,
additional major featured Conversations and a multitude of Convergence sessions
(open to both Film and Interactive registrants) will be announced in early
2014.  

The next Whitewater Films roundtable on November 4, to be moderated by Dana Harris of Indiewire, will focus on how to navigate SXSW, with film festival director Janet Pierson and programmers as well as the creative team behind last year’s SXSW breakout, “Short Term 12.”

Omg, I remember Lena Dunham from her Indie film days when she wrote, produced, and directed "Tiny Furniture". You have no idea how stoked I have been since I found out she will be here in Austin :) Maybe I can take care of her with our SXSW VIP services http://signup.sxperks.com
