SXSW and Monofonus


The South by Southwest Conferences and Festivals begin this Friday, 3/12, in Austin, Texas, and continue through 3/21. If you happen to be attending the festival, be sure to make it out to some of the presentations by Monofonus, the Austin-based multimedia organization, which has a full-schedule of film and video screenings, concerts and parties.

The schedule includes a screening of Lovers of Hate, a 2010 Sundance Film Festival Selection, which Monofonus helped produce. (Monofonus also provided the video installation for One Year Later: The Rumpus Anniversary Party).

Following SXSW, on 3/30, Monofonus will host the third installment of its Teleportal series, Teleportal 3: McSweeney’s, featuring Bill Cotter and Annie La Ganga, a Teleportal reading by Dean Young, video from Wholphin, and a special musical guest.
