Mentor Sessions at SXSW 2016

SXSW Mentor and Round Table Sessions are now open for RSVPs. These sessions are a great opportunity for Interactive, Film, and Music registrants to meet with industry professionals for quick one-on-one talks that focus on advice and guidance in a particular field. Specific areas of expertise are listed on the schedule, so make sure to peruse them all to find a good match. Advance sign-up is required and access is limited to badge type.
