The Red Carpet
A fresco of St. Tula, patron saint of cinema, over looks the audience from the proscenium at the Paramount Theater
Matt Dentler, SXSW producer, introduces the film--THE LOOKOUT--kicking-off the festival.
Veteran writer Scott Frank, who makes his directorial debut withTHE LOOKOUT says "hi," introduces the cast in the house, and then it was on with the show
After the film, the audience stayed til the end of the credits, anticipating a Q&A. The curtains closed. And everyone slowly wandered out of the theatre, slightly non-plussed by what is a clear deviation from festival protocol. It was weird.
AT THE AFTERPARTY
The party was in tents!
Superman in the house! Can Underdog woman be far behind?
It's all fun and games until someone gets a parking ticket.
Clearly, the sign said, "No Parking."
Late night comfort food.
