Has SXSW Film found its chill this year? And is that good or bad?
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.
