All the film details you could need (if all you need are the start-times)

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

Just over three weeks to go before the start of SXSW, and its time to start sorting out your diary as the times of all the events start to come through. First up is SXSW Film, and the keynotes, sessions, and screenings are all in the system for you to work through and build up your daily schedule (which you’ll probably ignore once you get to Austin, but hey, that’s just how Southby’ers roll).

Back in my day you had to use pencil and paper, or a chunky marker in the big book (to be honest I still do both, but I’m stubborn). Most people will be using their SXsocial login to select their favourites, and then syncing the results to their smartphones so they can look at them on the move.

I’m told it’s progress…

Start planning your daytime adventures in Austin with the scheduler

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

One of the advantages of living with a digital SXSW are the online tools. SXSW’s own Schedule system allows you to navigate all the sessions, marking your favourite,s and building up your own itinerary. This can be viewed online, and presumably through this year’s mobile app when it arrives.

It’s not that long before we all move to Sixth Street, so grab a coffee and dip into the SXSW Scheduler to mark your favourites.

We here at SXSW Baby! would always suggest that you have alternatives marked out at each time slot. Planning is good, but listening to serendipity not he streets of Texas’ capital is always the way to guarantee an excellent adventure. It’s worth noting that the music showcases are not yet listed in the system, nor are the film screenings, but they’ll show up during February.

Or you could rely on a big marker pan, just like we did in the old days…

Musical showcases now scheduled, start taking notes

Monday, February 10th, 2014

With just over a month to go, those of you looking to plan your SXSW Music marathon will want to head over to the official site, as the calendaring info you’ll need to know has now been added. Can you put together the answer so you can see all the performers you want to see, in the right order, and leave enough time between venues?

Head over to the SXSW.com Scheduler to start making your plans on who to see, where to see them, and when you’ll need to be there. Honestly, it’ll be fun…

SXSW V2V Digital Guide is Now Online

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

A recent addition to SXSW conferences is the ability to view the various program guides prior to the event through the digital Program Guides. This is a great resource to help filter through all the myriad sessions, gets you concise, targeted info on the start-ups, speakers, sessions, and a nice visual schedule grid.

It definitely makes planning your SXSW V2V experience easier.

Check it out here.

Milo- A Buttload of Fun

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Yeah, couldn’t resist the horrible pun, how could I when the movie is about a man who has a demon who lives in his lower intestines. This movie really could have gone down the toilet (oh come on! These jokes line themselves up!) but Milo managed to be one of the best horror comedies I have ever seen. Ken Marino is fantastic as the main character, and as the director/writer team pointed out in the Q&A who hasn’t had something come out of their a**?

For those of you worried about the gore factor, let me tell you that while this movie does have its gore laden moments it is one that doesn’t go over the top on the flying guts. In fact you might find yourself laughing more often than covering your eyes and cheering for the er? underdog? so to speak.

If you missed it tonight, Milo has additional screenings Monday March 11 at Alamo Slaughter, Thursday March 14 at Paramount, Friday March 15 at Topher

SXSW Film: Schedule is Coming Together

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

While SXSW Film has not yet announced that the Film Schedule is up (and we’ve heard from some filmmakers that their screenings will be confirmed shortly) the Screenings Schedule is starting to form up.

One of film geek buddies, Jason Whyte, pointed out that some films will be showing on both screens at the Alamo Ritz at the same time to increase audience capacity. Great idea, but we wonder how Q&A’s will work.

So head on over and check out the screenings schedule, but keep in mind it is probably not complete as yet.
