RTF at SXSW 2022

March 11-19, 2022 • Austin, TX

The 2022 SXSW Film Festival is back in person this year. Because of the Covid-19 global pandemic, the last time the streets of Austin were filled with spring festival-goers was 2019, three years ago. Yet, during this challenging period, our students, alumni, and faculty have continued to make excellent films and critically analyze the media we consume.
