SXSW 2019 is officially less than 1 month away and we’re feeling ecstatic after recently announcing the World Premiere of Paramount Pictures’ Pet Sematary, directed by Kevin Kölschand and Dennis Widmyer, as the closing night film for the 2019 Film Festival along with Midnighters, Festival Favorites, Shorts, Episodic Pilot Competition, Virtual Cinema, Music Video and more. Last week in our Music Weekly Roundup, we also added Polyvinyl indie stalwart Pedro the Lion, alt-folk collective The Strumbellas, psych-pop quartet Crumb, Terrible Records singer-songwriter Miya Folick and others to our already huge Music Festival lineup. But, stay tuned… because we’re just getting warmed up.
