Vote for REACT at SXSW 2015

Vote now for REACT sessions at next year's SXSW Interactive and Film conferences

We're excited to share details of three proposals for sessions at next year's SXSW Interactive and Film conferences.

SXSW is an annual festival that covers original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW is the premier destination for discovery.

These proposals come from both REACT and its alumni, and cover the production of interactive documentaries, the process of telling stories across platforms, and what happens when you crowd diversity to innovate in the field of Internet-connected objects.

You can vote for these sessions now on SXSW Panel Picker. The public vote is combined with reviews by SXSW staff and advisors to determine what sessions are the best fit for the conference.

A little about the sessions:
