In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, four No Film Schoolers report from the ground at the SXSW Film Festival. We share our first-hand takes on this year's awards, including the Grand Jury Award-winning "film about nothing," as it was introduced by a programmer; stunt-casting YouTube stars; films we've seen that you should watch out for this coming year, and some of the stories behind them; changes in distribution at the festival and beyond; and how a low-key SXSW could end up being a blessing in disguise for emerging filmmakers.
