Overheard at Start Garden: SXSW & ArtPrize

November 19, 2015 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Overheard at Start Garden: Janet Pierson (SXSW) & Christian Gaines (ArtPrize)

November 19th 5PM – 7PM
Tacos & Cocktails at 5PM
Conversation begins at 5:30PM

Join us for November’s Overheard event, a series where two influencers with a shared passion interview each other.

Janet Pierson and Christian Gaines take us back to the time of working in independent film together. They now run two large cultural festivals. Janet Pierson, Head of SXSW Film Festival, and Christian Gaines, Executive Director of ArtPrize, cover the origin of their respective festivals, the catalytic effect they have on their host cities, and the headaches that come with growth.

They discuss the future of these events and, probably, talk shop about the future of independent film as well.
