SXSW hosting series of free meet ups next week

Organisers of South by South West in Australia are hosting a series of free meet and greet panel sessions with conference veterans to share their thoughts on this year’s festival.

The announcement:

SXSW is hosting special free “Movie Meet ‘n’ Greet” networking nights in Adelaide, on August 3, and Brisbane, on August 4 with a panel of expert veterans in each city sharing secrets, tips and insider info as well as showing the 90 minute film “Outside Industry” on the raucous 30 year history of SXSW that was never released commercially because the producer never cleared the rich music within.  (See below for dates and speakers)
