Watch a SXSW Tradition as Dallas' Top Filmmakers Shoot Hoops

Anyone who's been to South by Southwest knows that the fun and the stress come in equal measure. This is especially true for any artist trying to network, schmooze and further his or her career. To unwind, Dallas' filmmakers host a basketball game they call #SXhoops. More than a dozen artists, distributors and journalists attended the game this year, hosted by Texas Theatre founders and producers Adam Donaghey and Barak Epstein.

It was a good festival for Dallas filmmakers, who contributed four shorts and one feature to the film portion of SXSW. With the Dallas International (April 14-24th) and the Oak Cliff (June 16-19th) film festivals around the corner, stay tuned to see which of these films make it back into town and are developed and distributed in the coming year. In the meantime, get to know Dallas' ambassadors of film in a new way: on the court.
