[update: Kevin Koym link repaired. Who knew you needed that pesky little http:// thingy?]
We are mid-way through South by Southwest film, interactive and music conference and festival here in Austin. I personally just survived five days of SXSW Interactive also attended by several Texas Forums friends like Charles Knickerbocker, Bijoy Goswami, Kevin Koym, David Swedlow, Silona Bonewald, Sunni Brown, Terry Crain, and Jon Lebkowsky. You have two more days to catch the SXSW film festival, but if your budget is a bit strapped, here’s another FREE alternative at the LBJ Library:
Who: Public is invited to a Science Fiction Film Festival featuring the Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow – Free admission and free Amy’s Ice Creams*
