Stoked! SXSW just announced the opening night film, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and that I’ll be hosting SXSW Film’s Fastball Speed Pitches at Startup Alley. Can’t wait to see many of you in Austin!
Here’s more info from SXSW:
SXSW Film 2013 is on! We want to start the party right, so we’re delighted to announce a taste of the exciting lineup we’re putting together for you, including our Opening Night world premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
As superstar Vegas magicians and former best friends Burt and Anton grow to secretly loathe each other, their long-time act implodes, allowing an ambitious rival street performer the big break he’s been waiting for. Steves Carell and Buscemi star in the hilarious, uproarious comedy. They’re joined by stellar cast featuring Jim Carrey, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin and James Gandolfini in a film that pretty much guarantees a raucous start to SXSW Film 2013.
Jacob Soboroff host of AMC News and host/producer of HuffPost Live, will emcee the Fastball Speed Pitches at Startup Alley. Additions to that lineup also include Franklin Leonard, Founder and CEO of The Black List, who will speak on a panel focusing on entrepreneurs shaping the entertainment industry.
