The SXSW Conference is happy to announce our second wave of Film Mentors and Round Table participants for the 2018 event. Mentor Sessions and Round Tables are SXSW Session Formats which provide an excellent way to get industry advice with a personal touch.
Mentor sessions center around one-on-one meetings with film and entertainment professionals, which range from experts in distribution and filmmaking to marketing and promotion, and more. Like the Mentor sessions, Round Tables are broken up into different sections such as Sales and Acquisitions, Publicity, and more.
Take a look back at our previously announced participants and stay tuned for Mentors and Round Tables sign-up coming later this season. Advanced sign-up is required and access is limited to badge type.
