As with any film festival, there’s more to South by Southwest than the films themselves. Austin’s annual celebration of all things movies, music, and more also features a bevy of keynote speeches, one of which is about to be delivered by Darren Aronofsky. The “mother!” writer/director has the floor bright and early today, discussing whatever he so chooses — and, perhaps, whatever those in attendance ask him about.
Aronofsky will begin his speech in the Austin Convention Center at 11 AM local time and speak for approximately an hour. A total of 13 Keynote speakers are on hand at SXSW, including Barry Jenkins, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Melinda Gates, and Sadiq Khan.
SXSW began yesterday, Friday March 9, and runs until this Saturday, March 17. Watch Aronofsky’s full Keynote below:
