SXSW: The Winning 'Film About Nothing' and What's Different This Year [PODCAST]

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.

I can't seem to find a download link for these podcasts. I can play them back, but the link to download that is usually present for any other SoundCloud podcast I've seen is nowhere to be found. Have they been disabled?

If you access the podcasts through the NFS website you will see a download link attached to the top right side of each SoundCloud player.

Excellent! Love your podcast. I have to say as a veteran film schooler, no film school is not about "No" film school. It's more about an "alternative" to film school. Because you guys are actually a film school, much like the one I attend in 1972-74, which amounted to checking out 16mm equipment and running with it, with very little guidance. It is most excellent. You guys are awesome.
