Yesterday, the 9 Stevenson FMI students attending the annual SXSW Film Festival with their instructor, FMI Chair Christopher Llewellyn Reed, went to see a screening of Stevenson Class of 2006 alumnus Nick Kovacic's latest film, Agave: Spirit of a Nation. It was a great event.

Yesterday, a group of 9 Stevenson FMI students + their instructor, FMI Chair Christopher Llewellyn Reed, arrived in Austin, TX, to spend a week at the annual SXSW Film Festival. This is the third such trip the FMI Department has made over the past four years. Students get to see films, network with industry professionals, attend seminars and panels, and have a great time.

Stevenson Film & Moving Image (FMI) students - from left to right, above, are Dakota Madanat, Ben Rossen, Travis Francis, Olivia Jonas, Greg St. Clair, Emily Kennard, T.J. Slade, Dan Whitehead, D.J. Carmon, Patrick Howard and Nate Schrader - have traveled to Austin, Texas, to attend the annual SXSW Festival. We arrived on Saturday, March 12, and will head back to Baltimore on Saturday, March 19. During the week, students will attend film and episodic TV series screenings, keynote events, panels and workshops. There is also a trade show featuring the latest digital technologies. This trip is part of a "special topics" course offered by the FMI Department, entitled "The Evolution of Film Festivals."

While the students are enjoying themselves and learning as much as they can about the current state of the film industry, their two accompanying professors - Dina Fiasconaro and Christopher Llewellyn Reed (yours truly) - will also be attending as many events as possible. In addition, I am covering the festival as a film critic for three different publications: Hammer to NailBmoreart and The Baltimore Sun's "Roughly Speaking" podcast. Be sure to click on the text I just hyperlinked to see my evolving coverage, which will include film reviews, filmmaker interviews and festival overviews.

Last academic year - in March, 2015 - a group of Stevenson FMI students attended the annual SXSW Festival, and had a great time. In March, 2016, we will go, again. All Juniors and Seniors are elligible should go, and should contact Chris Reed, if interested.

Here are three short videos made by students who traveled to Austin, Texas, for the 2015 SXSW Festival:

 

 

 

This past March, a group of Stevenson Film/Video students traveled to the 2015 SXSW Festival.

We'd like to offer the trip again next year - again during our Spring Break, and again as part of a "Special Topic" course (this time crosslisted with the "Major Directors/Movements" course of the new Film and Moving Image curriculim) - and are actively recruiting rising Juniors and Seniors to consider signing up. Festival attendees start booking Austin, TX, hotels in July of the year before the festival, so the sooner we have an idea of how many students will go, the better chance we have of booking affordable hotels that are within walking distance of the festival. Details in the poster, below:

A good time was had by all who went this year, though the young man, below (Ben Block, Class of 2016), has not been heard from since …
