THEY MADE US A MOVIE!
Me and Miriam are hoping this movie isn’t queer distancing, but queer and subversive, but we can’t tell that from the trailer. It could really go either way.
Either way, my whole crew is coming to the premiere tonight 9:30 PM at the Paramount Theater. If you’re around come through – according to some film folks I talked to yesterday, you can buy tickets even if you aren’t registered for SXSW.
Panel list after the jump.
Our panel is at 12:30, Saturday:
“Tech Power to the People” #TP2P
How do we ensure no one is left behind in the tech revolution? This panel is designed to provide a look into the best practices for using media to engage with communities, particularly minority outreach and low income/low access areas. This panel will feature a variety of activists explaining the ways in which they have used mobile campaigns, apps, blogs, and other methods to engage their communities and transfer skills, as well as tips for evaluation and measuring results.
