Blood, Brains and Heart: Genre Filmmaker Meet Up

Tuesday, March 15
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 208
110 E 2nd St


Now that film culture has been dominated by Jedi, dinosaurs, and too many damn superheroes, the doors have opened for indie filmmakers to push boundaries and elevate the tropes of horror, action, sci-fi, fantasy and suspense. Consider the midnight treasures of SXSW past (CHEAP THRILLS, TURBO KID, YOU'RE NEXT, WE ARE STILL HERE, STARRY EYES, KILL LIST, etc.) and then get ready to meet the veteran and emerging artists behind tomorrow's edgy favorites. If your idea of a fantastic movie includes exploding skulls and deep emotional payoffs, come join this network of boldly weird minds. We'll discuss the future of genre film... and argue about the meaning of "Deathwave."
