SXSW 2008: The Night Before The Night Before

SXSW 2008: The Night Before The Night Before

On Wednesday night at The Belmont, the Austin Film Society hosted a fun mixer for filmmakers and members on the eve of the eve of SXSW 2008. A good assortment of this year’s filmmakers are already in town, so many of them stopped by. Jarren and I dropped in, and had a fun time. Among the SXSW 2008 gang in attendance on Wednesday:
