Emily Hagins Film to Premiere at SXSW!

In 2008, then-16-year-old director Emily Hagins volunteered her time at that year’s South by Southwest to earn a badge to check out the prestigious film and media festival. This year, Hagins will attend as the director of My Sucky Teen Romance, which will have its premiere at that festival.

In a sense, this is the moment she’s been working toward since she first started shooting her first feature, Pathogen, at 11. Congratulations, Emily. You’ve earned this moment with years of hard work. I dare say some of us may end up volunteering at this year’s SXSW just to get in to see your premiere.
