This year’s SXSW event is ramping up and we know there’s a lot to do once you get there, but we’re hoping you’ll stop by some of the panels, screenings and award presentations that feature members of our greater Warner Bros. family. Here's a quick schedule of events happening this year, so drop by and say hello.
Saturday, March 14
SXSW Gaming Awards take place and our own blockbuster game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is up for five awards, including “Video Game of the Year.” The other nominations are for “Excellence in Gameplay,” “Excellence in Animation,” “Excellence in Technical Achievement” and “Excellence in Design and Direction.”
Monday, March 16
Peter Girardi from Warner Bros. Animation will be one of the panelists at the Breaking the Fourth Wall In the Digital Age discussion. So if you're curious about the future of entertainment and technology's role in bringing the audience further into the experience, this one's for you.
If you're looking for a sneak peek at one of television's most unique new series, iZombie will screen its first episode for attendees before its March 17 premiere on The CW.
Later that night, our upcoming new comedy, Get Hard, starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, will be presented in a special screening before it hits theaters for the rest of us on March 27.
Tuesday, March 17
In the mood for more laughs? May we suggest a visit to A Conversation with the Cast of Undateable featuring the cast from the sit-com, which airs on NBC.
