“It’s so exciting to be able to add two wonderful new titles to the lineup for the 2022 Film Festival, as part of the outstanding selection of wide-ranging work that Apple TV+ is bringing to SXSW this year. Not only did we fall in love with ‘Cha Cha Real Smooth’ at Sundance, we jumped at the chance to finally host SXSW 2020 Grand Prize Award-winning filmmaker Cooper Raiff for his first in-person festival premiere (ever) with this new film. ‘The Big Conn’ is a riveting, fascinating limited series we know our audience will embrace. We’re thrilled to have these join the other compelling Apple series that are premiering at the festival, including ‘WeCrashed,’ ‘Shining Girls’ and ‘They Call Me Magic.’
