Mentor Sessions at SXSW 2016

SXSW Mentor and Round Table Sessions are now open for RSVPs. These sessions are a great opportunity for Interactive, Film and Music registrants to meet with industry professionals for quick one-on-one talks that focus on advice and guidance in a particular field. Specific areas of expertise are listed on the schedule, so make sure to peruse them all to find a good match. Advance sign-up is required and access is limited to badge type. Reserve your session now.

Sign up to speak with one of our 400+ mentors across all tracks by registering through the online schedule or via the SXSW Go App. You must be registered to sign up online. A limited number of spots will be reserved for onsite RSVPs.

Mentor Sessions and Round Table Sessions will take place daily from Friday, March 10, through Saturday, March 19, in various locations throughout downtown Austin. Specific badge types are eligible to meet with mentors on the following days:

  • Interactive: Friday, March 10–Tuesday, March 14 (Westin Austin Downtown)
  • Film: Saturday, March 11–Tuesday, March 14 (Capital Ballroom A, Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin)
    • Film Round Tables: Saturday, March 11–Tuesday, March 14 (Capital Ballroom B, Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin)
  • Music: Wednesday, March 15–Saturday, March 18 (Room 8AB, Austin Convention Center)

Round Table Sessions, exclusive to Film, are an extension of Mentor Sessions. While they still require an advance RSVP limited to badge type, they feature one mentor per seven attendees in a round table format of three tables each time slot. Industry insiders will spend 20 minutes at a table before switching. Sign up now.
