UNT connections at South by Southwest 2019

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a Texas tradition that brings together the interactive, film and music industries in Austin for a 10-day event filled with conferences, festivals, sessions, showcases, screenings and exhibitions. Whether it be through music, film or professional panel discussions, as a leader in the creative economy, UNT regularly has a strong presence throughout the event. Check out our list of SXSW performers with UNT connections to see where the Mean Green will be popping up in Austin this March.
