SXSW: South by Southwest 2013 Recap photo
SXSW: South by Southwest 2013 Recap
by Flixist Staff

[From March 9th - 17th, Flixist will be providing coverage from South by Southwest 2013 in Austin, TX.  Prepare yourselves for reviews, interviews, features, photos, videos, and all types of shenanigans!]

We came, we saw, we conquered. Matt, Hubert, and Geoff visited Austin and came back a little weirder because of it. SXSW 2013 was truly just as great, if not better, than SXSW 2012. With a fuller team of people, we were able to rock more than two dozen reviews and a dozen interviews. My only regret was not being able to take more photos that I wanted to; simply put, SXSW is an experience that photos will never do justice for.

Below is all of our SXSW content neatly organized with your convenience in mind. We still have some really awesome pieces of content that, unfortunately, we won't be able to put up until later on due to embargoes and behind the scenes stuff. But trust us, you'll love them all when they go up!
