If you haven't already, you're going to hear the name Jerrod Carmichael a lot. The talented young comic is a regular at LA comedy haunts like Meltdown, The Improv and Laugh Factory, and now he's coming to Austin to host the 2013 SXSW Film Awards. In addition to joining us in March, Jerrod is also headed to your TV, starring in The Goodwin Games on Fox, alongside Scott Foley and TJ Miller.
Every March, creatives of all stripes gather in Austin to witness, share and inspire the visions that will galvanize the filmmakers and ideas of tomorrow. SXSW Film Conference & Festival champions the vitality, innovation and opportunity that drives the entertainment and media landscape, and boldly tackles the evolution of all aspects of “film” today, down to its very definition.
A nexus of discovery and collaborative energy, SXSW Film celebrates the art and business of the possible.
