Festival Genius makes SXSW easier

picThings have been a bit quiet around here lately because it's been all hands on deck for the launch of Festival Genius, B-Side's new scheduling tool for film festivals. If you're attending South by Southwest this year I encourage you to give it a whirl. Fest Genius not only helps you figure out what to see, it can automatically find and fix conflicts so you can see the maximum number of films possible in the allotted time.

Once you're done tweaking your schedule to perfection, Festival Genius will even export your event calendar to Outlook, your iPhone, or other calendar program. Or go old school and print it out.

The Festival Genius for SXSW 2009 includes film, music, and interactive events (including panels and parties), so if you're headed to Austin this coming week, please check it out.
