SXSW is becoming increasingly star-studded as companies hope to draw attention to their wares. In the mobile space this year, Samsung is sponsoring a Prince concert while BlackBerry is staying true to their productive roots by getting Robert Rodriguez to host a talk on filmmaking followed by a sweet backyard BBQ.
Robert Rodriguez is officially launching his section of the BlackBerry Keep Moving project the following Monday but has already begun the collaborative filmmaking effort a bit early by speaking with film students at SXSW.
Rodriguez’ talk will be from 2-3pm on Friday March 15th (Backyard BBQ from 5-6pm) at the BlackBerry house. You might need to use a bit of charm secure an invite so drop by the BlackBerry house located at 78, 80 and 82 Rainey Street (just half a mile from the Austin Convention Center) before March 14th.
