SXSW Panels: "Four-Day Film School" @ SXSW 2008

A recent SXSW announcement:

Whether you went to film school or not, SXSW has created a four-day explosion of information that should be essential and valuable to various members of the filmmaking scene. It’s called “Four-Day Film School,” and it will occur as part of the annual SXSW Film Conference panel programs. On each of the four days of the SXSW Film Conference, badgeholders are invited to attend workshop sessions geared towards the specific details of getting a film from pre-production to post-production, and beyond. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time filmmaker or veteran, there are sessions included for every case. These are some of the topics that serve as the backbone for any film production, short or feature.
