SXSW Film Festival

From March 9th to 13th, we attended SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. When we left New York, the temperature was about 32F, but a few hours later in Austin, it was 80F! America is certainly a big country. And this festival is so American! Everything is casual, optimistic, and relaxed. It's also a party town. We had so much fun.

There were so many parties at SXSW! I don't know how many invitations I've got. Parties are fun, but at the same time, they are places where I should meet new people and talk about business.

The picture below is Matt Dentler, the producer of SXSW. He is only 27 years young, and he is responsible for this huge, important event. Only in America.

I participated a panel discussion entitled "Political Documentary."

カナダの映画批評家、ジェニーさんにインタビューされる。「選挙」をとても気に入ってくれて、「HOT DOCSに来たときはトロントを案内するわ」と言ってくれた。ホントにホント?
Jennie, a journalist from Canada did an interview with me. She really liked CAMPAIGN, and said "I'm going to show you around when you come to Toronto to attend Hot Docs."

Austin Movie Showというテレビ番組に出演。ホスト役のジェイガーさんとは話が弾んだなあ。
I also participated a local TV show called "Austin Movie Show." Its host Jegar was really cool.

A critic from Cape Town, Sarah, was one of the person who really understood and appreciated CAMPAIGN and my intention. Her in-depth interview made me feel that it was worth making this movie.

We filmmakers enjoyed free 15 minute massage services everyday! This was incredibale. Such a great idea. So Austin, in a sense.

CAMPAIGN was covered by many medium at SXSW. Here are some examples.
