Dilcia's SXSW Experience
This year marked SXSW Film’s 20th edition and my first time attending. I was warned by many of SXSW’s chaotic nature because Austin converts into a hub of thousands of people in search of the latest innovations in music, technology, and of course film. The weather was nice, the food was awesome, and the lines were surprisingly easy to master – only requires a little bit of discipline to wake up early and obtain a Festival Exxpress pass for entrance priority.

Philadelphia Film Society Managing Director, Parinda Patel, attended a press junket with actor-turned-director Michael Rapaport, in anticipation of his latest documentary film project, Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest. Rapaport spoke about how his life-long love of hip hop (and Tribe in particular) prompted him to make this film. He also speaks of his now very public relationship with the group, which took a tumultuous downturn ealier this year when the film hit the Sundance Film Festival.
