Other panels in the confab’s lineup include “Coming Soon: The Making of a Trailer,” “An Actor’s Workshop With Jeffrey Tambor,” “Drugs, Politics and Race: A ‘Harold & Kumar’ Panel” and “What the Writers Strike Taught Us.”

These panels join already announced highlights such as “A Conversation With Harlan Ellison,” “Stanley Nelson: History in the Making” and “A Conversation With Helen Hunt.” SXSW will close with “A Conversation With Moby,” in which BMI’s Doreen Ringer-Ross will interview the musician-film composer.
