Well the SXSW FIlms selection started off with a bang yesterday, March 7th 2014. I had the pleasure of attending two premiering films, Chef and The Infinite Man (reviews to come shortly). I stood in line among hundreds of individuals with film badges (press and film lovers alike), all very eager to jump right in to the primordial ooze. These particular premieres were held at the gorgeous Paramount/Stateside Theatre at 713 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701. Plenty of famous directors/actors are in town for Q&A’s about their films, interviewing, & general ogling. Many feature length, short, and documentary films are premiering this coming week, some are even competing and being judged in each category. These films are also open to SXSW wristband holders and the general public, but the badgers have priority, so seating is limited. Other theaters surrounding the downtown area are also premiering films (Alamo Ritz, Zach Theater, Vimeo Theater & Long Center to name a few). I’m looking forward to attending many films and workshops throughout the week.

Much more to come so stay tuned!
