Announcing Second Wave of 2019 SXSW Film Mentors and Round Tables

The SXSW Conference is happy to share our second round of Film Mentors and Round Table participants for the 2019 event. Mentors and Round Tables are an excellent way to get industry advice with a personal touch.

Mentor sessions center around one-on-one meetings with film and entertainment professionals, with experts in fields ranging from distribution and filmmaking to marketing and promotion, and more. The Round Table program allows for seven attendees to sit at a table and converse with a rotating group of industry insiders. Not only do attendees get the opportunity to learn from industry experts, but also from the questions and experiences of their peers. Like the Mentor sessions, Round Tables are broken up into different sections such as Sales and Acquisitions, Publicity, and many more.

Stay tuned for Mentors and Round Tables sign-up coming in February. Advance sign-up is required and access is limited by badge type.
