SXSW was a success!

gary fortin

The World Premiere of "Road To Austin" was a smashing success! We had a capacity crowd of 650 people and there were at least another hundred people that did not get in (sorry!)

The film was introduced by Janet Pierson, Head of SXSW Film and she had some very kind words..."this was one of the easiest films to program into the festival, it has it all"!

The after party was quite the musical evening and there were so many special moments it would be impossible to list or even remember them all! The backstage area was quite the center of activity with the media and all the photographers buzzing about trying to capture all the red carpet moments! We had 24 musicians on the show so there was no shortage of stories and camaraderie as we celebrated the film and Stephen Bruton's life!

Next Stop... Dallas International Film Festival for a 4/5 ~ 4/7 screening, both at 4:30pm at the Angelika movie theatre.

See ya down the road!

Well...FORMAX Group could not leave well enough alone and has decided to combine the World Premiere of the film with a large scale musical production at the film screening after party. All this will take place at the Austin Convention Center on Thursday March 13th. The film will premiere in the Vimeo Theatre and then directly after the screening we will kick off the after party in the Austin Ballroom on the second floor of the Convention Center.

If you know the FORMAX Group productions then you know we only know one size "Big"! This after party event will be no exception!! So far we have the 12-piece band that Stephen Bruton built, and 10 performers (including: Bobby Whitlock & CoCo Carmel, Suzanna Choffell, Malford Milligan, Paula Nelson, David Grissom, Warren Hood....and much more to be announced soon (hint, hint)!

World Premiere is March 13, 2014

Today is the day that we can confirm the date, time and venue for the World Premiere of "Road To Austin"!  

Thursday - March 13, 2014

4:30 pm

Vimeo Theatre (inside the Austin Convention Center)

I know there are a lot of people that don't have official badges for the film festival and want to come to the screening, here is what we suggest...

 The best way to get tickets to the premiere is to show up at the venue early on the day day of the screening - SXSW badge holders get preference for admission and then they will open up seating to the general audience for $10 per seat!! The Theatre holds 650 people, so if you get there early (at least 1hr.) they will give you a place holder in the line (kinda like a standby list).

See ya down the Road,
