SXSW announces film panelists

More than 100 panels cover full spectrum of filmmaking

Todd Phillips, Paul Reubens, Duncan Jones, Ellen Page, Jake Gyllenhaal and Rainn Wilson havebeen tapped as panelists at The South by Southwest Film Conference.

SXSW announced Tuesday that over 100 sessions will take place over the course of the festival, which takes place from March 11-19 in Austin, Texas.

“Many of my favorite moments at SXSW have included those great connections made in the halls of the Film Conference, where film professionals of every stripe gather to teach, learn, and compare notes,” said Film Conference and Producer Janet Pierson. “Through Conversations, panels, workshops and one-on-one mentor sessions, tremendous access and information are available to our registrants.”

The new panels join over 40 previously announced sessions, including Catherine Hardwicke’s Directing Workshop, an Ain’t It Cool News 15th Anniversary Panel, “The Female Funny: Is it Different for Girls,” “Did You Kill Anyone?” and “Reality in War Movies.”
