Things to Do for Free

(and without a badge) at SXSW Interactive

To attend for free the following Interactive/Film Trade Show & Exhibition events, you must get an iF! Pass (www.sxsw.com/if_pass or available for free at Waterloo Video). Without iF! pass, cost to attend is $25 (thus negating the free part). iF! events take place noon-6pm on Sunday, March 13; noon-6pm on Monday, March 14; and noon-4pm on Tuesday, March 15.

Live Interviews at Studio SX

As the SXSW program states, Studio SX allows you to watch live one-on-one interviews with some of your favorite speakers from SXSW Interactive and SXSW Film. Many of these interviews will be posted on the Web at www.sxsw.com. Studio SX is located at the northwest corner of the iF! Trade Show + Exhibition. Last-minute schedule updates will be posted on the signs located just outside this area, so be sure to stop by to see who else has been added to the lineup.
