Cartoon Network Screening At SXSW 2017

Cartoon Network USA will be hosting a special screening during the SXSW 2017 (South by Southwest) media event in Austin, Texas on Monday 13th March at 8pm at the Long Center for Performing Arts. The screening will feature never before seen episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball, We Bare Bears, Ben 10 and Teen Titans Go! and apparently there’s a big surprise too. A SXSW badge will be required for access to the screening.

SXSW is a major annual media event and is an amalgamation of film, interactive media and music festivals. At last year’s SXSW event, Cartoon Network USA hosted the world premiere of The Powerpuff Girls 2016 reboot as well as a pre-premiere party. Last year, Cartoon Network also hosted a creativity panel with Ian Jones-Quartey (creator of OK K.O.!: Let’s Be Heroes and former supervising director for Steven Universe), Julia Pott (Creator of Summer Camp Island), Kyle Carrozza (Creator of Mighty Magiswords), Pete Browngardt (Creator of Uncle Grandpa and Secret Mountain Fort Awesome) and Rob Sorcher (Chief Content Officer at Cartoon Network). Cartoon Network also hosted a joint panel with Lego about their on-going content collaboration with shows such as Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and Nexo Knights.
