The 2019 SXSW festival has officially kicked off in sunny Austin, Texas, and while you may not be attending this year's packed edition, there's still a way for you to join in on this year's festivities.

Kicking off today at 11am CT (and at various times throughout the week, on a daily basis), the festival is providing access to select keynotes and group discussions from the SXSW Conferences that take place concurrently with each of the film screenings, music performances, stand-up shows, and more on the ground. 

Neil Gaiman, Leonard Maltin, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Elisabeth Moss, Seth Rogan, Charlize Theron, and more are just a few of the Conference participants that will be streaming on the SXSW Youtube channel over the next few days.
