SXSW Film 2014 is going to the “Girls.” Or at least, the main one.
Lena Dunham, Jason Blum and Casey Neistat are the first three keynote speakers announced for the 2014 film festival, according to SXSW.
As a matter of fact, the trio is the first three keynote speakers ever for the cinema portion of the popular Texas entertainment gathering. A keynote will take place each day from March 8 to March 11 at 11 a.m.
Also new this year for this will be “Future15s”: Brief, yet intense 12-minute solo performances where speakers will rotate every three minutes.
Longer-form featured speakers for the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival include Andy Cohen, Ben Horowitz, Leslie Saxon, Joi Ito, Dmitry Grishin, Kristina Halvorson and Jade Raymond.
There will be more than 500 sessions overall during the 10-day Austin festival, nearly all of the topics cultivated by SXSW’s online community.
