This Year’s SXSW Film and Interactive Festivals

Greetings from Austin, TX! I have returned to the capital of the Lone Star state for this year's South by Southwest film and interactive festivals.
You can follow-up my updates throughout the day on Twitter (@jessiemosby). Once I'm home later this week, I will post some reviews and more updates.
But right now I am too busy with festival activities! So far I've seen six films - and enjoyed all of them! There are the documentaries (Dreams of a Life, Wonder Women, and Eating Alabama), the LGBT romantic comedy (Gayby), and the just for fun (21 Jump Street). And then there is my favorite: The premiere of filmmaker Lena Dunham's new HBO show Girls. Over a year ago I interviewed Lena when her fantastic film Tiny Furniture screened at the Mill Valley Film Festival. I've been a fan ever since! Seeing the first three episodes of Girls today was so much fun! I love the tone of the series, and really appreciate how Lena sheds every bit of self-consciousness when she's on camera. I cannot wait to watch the rest of the season! Girls premieres on HBO in April.
