Local filmgoers should also remember that it’s not necessary to have a badge or wristband to see festival; single admission tickets are available at all screenings, space permitting. SXSW has a very informative page, which you can find at www.sxsw.com/film/screenings/access, that details everything you need to know about attending the screenings – from how the lineups work to when you should arrive and which theatres are the biggest and therefore easiest to get into. If you’d prefer to avoid the Downtown commotion altogether, that can be arranged by heading to either of the three satellite screening locations: the Alamo Drafthouse Village, Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Creek, and the Marchesa Hall and Theatre. The complete schedule can be viewed at http://schedule.sxsw.com/?lsort=time&conference=film&event_type=Screening#. Also keep an eye out for Buzz Screenings added for some popular films, as well as encore screenings at the end of the week of all the films that received festival awards at Tuesday night’s ceremony.
Venues include Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz, Rollins Studio at the Long Center, Paramount Theatre, Stateside at the Paramount, Vimeo Theater at the Austin Convention Center, AMC at the Violet Crown Cinema, Topfer Theatre at ZACH, Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane, Alamo Drafthouse Village, Marchesa Hall & Theatre.
