Why SXSW is More than Just a Film Festival [PODCAST]

SXSW 2018
This episode of Indie Film Weekly reports from the streets of America's wildest film—and everything else—festival.

Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, Oakley Anderson-Moore and yours truly, Liz Nord have been running all over downtown Austin, Texas for the past week to bring you insights from America's coolest film event, the SXSW Film Festival and conference.

In this episode, we forego our regular show format to share in-depth festival coverage, from news on the ground, to interviews with festival award-winners, to the best advice from industry panelists, to survival tips for navigating the massive event. We also talk about the value for filmmakers of a festival with as many non-film tracks and sections as this one has.
