Chevrolet is back for another year as a SXSW Super Sponsor with exciting plans across SXSWeek.
In a nod to the interactive spirit of SXSW, Chevrolet will provide opportunities for registrants to interact with the latest Chevrolet vehicles - like the 2013 Malibu - through the Catch-a-Chevy and Drive-a-Chevy programs. The interactive experience with Chevy vehicles won't end at a free ride or a simple test drive though, registrants will be able to get a hands-on look into the Chevrolet's newest innovative technologies, discover music they love, and explore the ins and outs of SXSW.
Mitchell (Josh Duhamel) and Carter (Dan Fogler), life-long friends who have drifted apart, are on a road trip when their old pickup breaks down, leaving them stranded on an isolated desert road. Nobody can pick apart a man like his best friend, and as the relentless elements of the desert grind them down, they start to attack each other’s life decisions with unwavering brutality.
If you walk away from reading this with one thing, Lifeway Foods would like it to be this: kefir is not yogurt. So what is kefir? Well, like yogurt, kefir is a low-fat cultured dairy food rich in calcium and protein. Unlike yogurt, kefir is made with 12 different live & active cultures, and it’s cultured for 14 hours, giving it a higher probiotic count than yogurt and an effervescent, tangy flavor. (Seven to 10 billion units in a serving – dang!)

He told us that the first concert he ever went to was when he was five. It was Michael Jackson's Thriller and it ruled.
Cayton-Holland plays adult, co-ed indoor soccer and takes it way too seriously. He said, "I don't go easy on the girls. Because that is true feminism. Plus it helps pad my stats."

The two films in this Filmmakers in Focus paint vivid, intimate portraits of two very different subjects. Otilia Portillo Padua's Diario a Tres Voces is a visually stunning look at how love affects three different Mexican women. Eva Orner's The Network, on the other hand, examines Afghanistan from a unique perspective, and is no less intimate.
