Cinereach Supported Films at SXSW 2012
Cinereach is excited to note that the SXSW Film Festival, which takes place from March 9th – 17th, has included three Cinereach grantees in its lineup: the US premiere of Girl Model and the world premieres of Code of the West and Tchoupitoulas. Compliance, which received support through the Cinereach Project at Sundance Institute, will also be making its next festival appearance there.
Along with the festival, the SXSW Film Conference runs March 9th-13th and features a range of opportunities to survey the culture, technology and business of contemporary filmmaking. Conference attendees embarking on the grant-seeking process can join Cinereach’s Leah Giblin for the panel Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Grants (Sunday, March 11 at 11:00am). She’ll be sharing pragmatic insights in discussion with Judith Helfand of Chicken & Egg Pictures, Dianne Debicella of Fractured Atlas, Tamara Horowitz of San Francisco Film Society, and filmmaker Ellen Spiro.
