Our friends at Balcones Recycling worked hard this year to make SXSW a cleaner event than ever before. With the help of trained janitorial crews they diverted tens of thousands of pounds of waste from the landfill by collecting recycling and compost at three major SXSW locations. Auditorium Shores (65% diversion), South Bites Food Court (87% diversion), and Brush Square Park (48% diversion) all showed impressive results especially for our first year working with Balcones. We are confident that next year will be even better!

A visionary whose innovations paved the way for the Internet as we know it today, Sir Tim Berners-Lee now serves as Director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). At the 2013 SXSW Interactive Festival, he anchored a standout featured speaker lineup that showcased some of the most creative minds in the new media industry.
We've been following Jesse and Celine's journey for the last 18 years since Before Sunrise hit the screens in 1995. Now director Richard Linklater, along with actors/co-screenwriters Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, invite us back into their world as we find Jesse and Celine dealing with the joys and trials of long-term love and raising a family. Life's gotten real for these once strangers on a train and our time with them is rewarded in this candid look at what comes after. This masterpiece is a stunning achievement from Linklater and a rare treat in a world that often seems limited to only the beginnings.
This year we were lucky to present "50 Years of the Beatles" in collaboration with the Grammy Museum.
Hop in your time machine and have a gander at artists Robyn Hitchcock, Rodney Crowell and Ron Sexsmith as they head back to February 1964 along with Bill Flanagan and moderator Bob Santelli to discuss the Fab Four's storming of both America and Britain's shores.
