Announcing the Third Wave of 2018 SXSW Film Mentors and Round Tables

The SXSW Conference is excited to announce our third 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 first wave and second wave announcements. Stay tuned for Mentors and Round Tables sign-up coming up soon.
