Film Threat finally returned in person to the SXSW Film Festival and ate a lot of BBQ, drank some Lone Star, and saw a few movies. Well, a lot of movies. So if you weren’t like most people (or filmmakers and publicists) who checked the Film Threat website 50 times a day, we thought we’d make it easy for you and create one story that includes everything we did and saw from SXSW in the comfort of our homes. (This is like our final book report and was put together by Film Threat’s Alan Ng and Sabina Dana-Plasse, who were on the ground in Austin; and Andrew Stover, Benjamin Franz, Bradley Gibson, Hanna B., Jason Delgado, Josiah Teal, Michael Talbot Haynes, and Rob Rector, who whipped out their laptops and iPads at home.)
Enjoy this round-up of SXSW coverage, including Film Threat reviews and reviews from Film Threat’s YouTube channel. Okay, we’re dialing up more BBQ and whatever beer we have in our respective fridges. See you at the 2023 SXSW fest for more!
